Crown Point to open parks, reschedule events in phases

Similar to other markets in the area, the Crown Point market will open with restrictions in place due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

According to a post on the city's special events department webpage, attendees and vendors will be asked to follow various guidelines. 

The city has asked anyone who is sick or has been in contact with someone who is/was ill or tested positive for COVID-19 in the past two weeks to avoid the market.

Only 100 people will be allowed in the market at a time, the post says.

Those attending should sanitize their hands before and after attending the market and maintain social distancing in lines (at least 6 feet of space between patrons and vendors). Wearing a mask is "highly recommended."

Until social distancing restrictions are lifted, there will be one entrance/exit from the market and seating won't be available for patrons.

Shoppers are not allowed to consume products at the market, neither should they touch products until they have been purchased.

Similar to shoppers, any vendor who appears sick shouldn't attend the market.

All vendors are asked to wear gloves and masks, and vendors will be spaced at least 10 feet apart. Vendors are allowed to serve one customer at a time.

Hand sanitizer should be at each vendor booth and available to employees and customers. Surfaces and payment devices should be cleaned after each patron is served.

Anyone who doesn't follow the guidelines will be asked to leave the market, according to the city's website.
