COVID-19 Safety

COVID-19 Safety Acknowledgement

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people gather, and you understand that no precautions can eliminate the risk of exposure. By attending Sacramento Pride events, you expressly agree to comply with any rules and safety guidelines put in place by the event organizers and voluntarily assume all risks and liability related to exposure to COVID-19, which may include severe illness and death.

We ask that you not attend if any of the following is true for you or anyone at your party:

  • Within ten days before attending Sacramento Pride events, you have tested positive or been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19;
  • Within 48 hours before attending the Sacramento Pride Events, you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., a fever of 100.4F or higher, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking muscle pain/achiness, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, nasal congestion, runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue or any other symptoms associated with COVID-19 identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention);
  • Within ten days prior to attending the Sacramento Pride events, you have traveled anywhere (including any international territory identified by federal or applicable state or local governments as being) subject to travel or quarantine advisories due to COVID-19

WHAT COVID-19 PROTOCOLS WILL BE IN PLACE?

The health and safety of our community is of great importance. The Sacramento LGBT Community Center and Sacramento Pride will follow all local and state COVID-19 health and safety guidelines in place at the time of Pride events. At this time, our plan is to require all staff, exhibitors/vendors and guests at the Pride Festival to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID test conducted within 72 hours of the event to reduce the risk of potential exposure and spread of the virus. As the pandemic continues to be a dynamic situation, we will adjust our policies and communicate any new or changing requirements and expectations to ticket holders before the events. Visit here for the most up to date California State guidelines.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • You can easily obtain and provide a digital copy of your California vaccination record with just a few steps at https://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov/.
  • Photos of your COVID-19 vaccination card or your negative test results are permitted. Please be prepared to show some form of I.D.
  • To find a vaccination site near you, please visit https://myturn.ca.gov/ or call the Sacramento LGBT Community Center at (916) 442-0185, your local county department of public health, or your health provider.
  • All unvaccinated guests (ages 5+) must provide proof of a negative test prior to entry. The test must be conducted within 72 hours of event attendance.
  • Free testing is available at the Sacramento LGBT Community Center, visit http://saccenter.org/covid19info for more information. To find alternate testing locations in Sacramento, please visit Sacramento County’s Testing Sites.
  • Masks are recommended, but not required, per state guidelines.

Sacramento Pride is moving toward being a cashless festival. Entry tickets will be sold online in advance to reduce congestion and speed up lines. A limited number of tickets will be available at an on-site box-office and can be purchased with cash for a premium price. We will no longer use beverage tickets. Beverage stations will primarily offer credit/debit tap to pay and digital payment options, with limited cash payment options.

Please note that these guidelines are subject to change without notice. If the above changes create a barrier to service due to a medical condition, community members may request accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act by contacting the Office Coordinator, Rae Billeci rae.billeci@saccenter.org or (916) 442-0185.
