Participating In the Pate Swap Meet

Notice of Risk and Policies

The Pate Swap Meet has taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our Pate Visitors, Pate Vendors, our Pate Volunteers, Pate Staff and other guests. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present, including the Pate Swap Meet and the event for which you attend.  COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.  People who show no symptoms may spread COVID-19 if they are infected and therefore any event where people are present may pose a heightened risk of contracting COVID-19.  If you are considered a high-risk person as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you may be especially vulnerable to COVID-19.  You should evaluate your own risk in determining whether to attend any public event including the event at the Speedway for which you are purchasing admission.

As a condition of admission to this event at the Pate Swap Meet you will be required to abide by all current facility rules, posted instructions, and protocols while on-premises or risk ejection, including, but not limited to the following, which may be periodically revised in accordance with public health guidance or requirements, or other guidance or requirements:

  1. Participants over the age of 2 are required to wear a mask that covers the mouth and nose, except when seated in their assigned grandstand seat.  Additional guidelines regarding wearing a mask may be provided.  
  2. Participants may be required to submit to a non-contact temperature check prior to entry.
  3. Participants may be presented with a brief questionnaire prior to entry to confirm that they are not currently experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms and/or have not been recently exposed to the virus which causes COVID-19.
  4. Participants must maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between their travel party and others.
  5. Participants are reminded to wash their hands frequently with soap and water.
  6. For participants who may need an accommodation in order to comply with any facility rules and/or protocols, please contact us for further information.

In addition, to further protect the health and safety of all participants you will not be admitted to the Pate Swap Meet and you should stay home if within past fourteen (14) days you have:

  1. Tested positive or have been deemed presumptively positive with COVID-19;
  2. Sought testing to determine whether you might have COVID-19 due to contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, and have not yet received the results;
  3. Been informed that you may have been exposed to Coronavirus or learned that you have been in the immediate vicinity of a person now known to have been carrying the Coronavirus; or
