The fair is currently scheduled to go on as planned August 17-23.
Both the U.P. State Fair Authority and the Delta County Chamber of Commerce are working alongside local, state, and federal authorities and fair partners to ensure that a safe and healthy plan is in place for the event.
The Delta County Chamber of Commerce says once the established health and safety plan is in place, all involved groups will have to agree to requirements and restrictions.
If the fair is approved to move forward, those in attendance may see some of these changes reflected in the fair experience, such as more handwashing stations, vendors adhering to personal protective equipment standards, and social distancing requirements.
