We have had inquires from those concerned about coronavirus and how it might impact our Nuestra Tierra Festival scheduled for Tuesday, March 17.
The health and safety of our community is a priority for us and we are following guidelines to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, which is advising that there is no immediate threat to the general public: “All Los Angeles County residents, students, workers, and visitors are encouraged to engage in their regular activities and practice good public health hygiene, as this is the height of flu season across the County.”
For the event: We are asking those who are sick to stay home and will share recommendations from the CDC and Department of Public Health at the check-in table, which will include asking attendees to wash hands often with soap and water; avoid touching their eyes, noses, and mouths with unwashed hands; avoid sharing food, utensils and the use of other objects; limit close contact and refrain from handshaking and hugging. In addition to the sinks in the park, we will be providing additional portable hand-washing stations throughout the event area.
We will continue to monitor what the CDC says. If this virus begins to pose a bigger threat, we will make sure to communicate updates. In the meantime, our plans are underway and we are excited to host this public lands celebration and to have you join us for a fun and lucky time!
Con much amor,
Nature for All Team
