COVID-19 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES AT THE YORK EXPO CENTER

March 16, 2020

As many are aware, as of late last week Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf strongly recommended the postponement or cancellation of all non-essential gatherings, as well as social distancing procedures. In accordance with this policy, the York Expo Center will immediately adhere in accordance with this recommendation, and any other mandates created by local, state, or federal government moving forward.

Along with Gov. Tom Wolf’s statement, recently the CDC gave guidelines and recommendations to cancel events with fifty or more people for the next eight weeks. Out of an abundance of caution and in consideration of the health and safety of our community, we are temporarily suspending all events taking place at the York Expo Center until May 10.

At this time, we are still planning for all events after May 10, including the York State Fair July 24 thru August 2.

We understand that COVID-19’s effects have been and will be extremely challenging for our entire community and our goal is to work with every event, client, and vendor to accommodate as best as we can at this point. All parties are being contacted, and we will make our best efforts to reschedule booked events.

The safety and well-being of our guests while on our grounds, and our community is our top concern. At this time, we encourage everyone to stay up to date on timely information about COVID-19 released by the CDC, and the PA Department of Health. The York Expo Center and York State Fair will keep its social media as well as websites updated to keep in line with the changes made to keep our community safe.
