Review our safety protocols for the Lakeside Craft & Art Show, July 24-25

  • Masks are required to attend and shop the Craft & Art Show.
  • Vendors will be spread out with 12’ between each tent/booth. Vendors will only be placed along the hotel side of the walkway. No vendors will be on the north side/lakeside of the walkway to encourage 6’ distancing when people are walking or waiting to enter a booth.
  • Additional vendors will be placed in the Pavilion Circle and/or the cannon area of Bettinger Park to allow appropriate social distancing.
  • Only 1 customer in a tent at a time.
  • All vendors are required to wear masks.
  • Vendors will attempt to reduce the number of display items that people typically touch, putting them in display cases, and sanitizing them when a customer handles them.
  • Vendors will be encouraged to roll up the sides of their tents to promote airflow, weather permitting.
  • The vendors in the large tent will be greatly reduced and the sides rolled up, weather permitting. Paths of egress will be marked so there’s an in/out flow.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the show.

As a reminder to keep our community healthy and safe, we ask that you review our safety protocols at Lakeside Chautauqua and increase your diligence in taking precautions, such as wearing masks/face coverings and practicing safe social distancing.

The Ottawa County Health Department (OCHD) recommends that all Ottawa County residents continue to take measures to protect themselves and others from this virus. You can do this by:

  • Wearing a mask/face covering,
  • Continuing to social distance (at least 6 feet) between individuals,
  • Avoiding groups of 10 people or more,
  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds,
  • Avoiding touching your mouth, nose or eyes,
  • Covering coughs and sneezes with your arm,
  • Cleaning frequently touched surfaces,
  • Avoiding those that are sick, and
  • Staying home if you are sick

If you feel you have any symptoms at all, please refrain from visiting Lakeside Chautauqua. If you are already in Lakeside and have symptoms, please contact your doctor, quarantine for up to 14 days, wear a mask/face covering at all times, maintain 6 feet of distance between you and others and use hand sanitizer and wash hands frequently with soap and water. If your doctor recommends that you be tested for COVID-19, tests are performed nearby at Magruder Hospital.

The Ottawa County Health Department can assist you with proper quarantine procedures and access to health care in the area, to protect you and others in the community.

Again, protect yourself, family, friends, neighbors and our Lakeside community by wearing a mask/facial covering, keeping 6 feet of physical distance between you and others, use hand sanitizer and wash hands frequently with soap and water, do things outside as much as possible, and be kind and courteous to fellow Lakesiders.

We are Lakeside and we care about each other. We are counting on you to do your part to keep everyone in Lakeside safe.

Thank you for your understanding in keeping our community safe and healthy.
