The purpose of this memo is to provide the community an update on the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to the next Interfusion Festival occurring on January 13-19, 2022.
What are Interfusion Festival’s COVID-19 plans?
The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. Interfusion Festival (Interfusion) will follow all statewide and national Health and Safety policies. As part of our mitigation strategies, Interfusion has doubled the festival grounds, established a Health and Safety Team (HST), and is developing a COVID-19 Action Plan white paper.
When will the white paper be published?
The COVID-19 Action Plan white paper will be published for public review no later than 90 days before the next Interfusion Festival occurring on January 13 – 17, 2022. Interfusion's COVID-19 risk mitigation strategies and protocols will be included in the white paper for community feedback.
What is the capacity of the next festival?
The expanded Interfusion Festival grounds has a capacity for approximately 5,000 persons at one time. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Interfusion is limiting the festival to 20 percent of full venue capacity with access control systems in place to enforce the protection measures outlined in the white paper.
Will Interfusion passes be limited?
All festival pass reservations will close once the 20 percent capacity limit has been reached. In the event that the U.S. reaches projected vaccination levels and infection rate reductions, the HST will recommend the Interfusion Board of Directors increase the 20 percent capacity limit on festival attendance, in correlation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance and statewide public health measures at that time.
What if the Festival is postponed due to COVID-19?
Interfusion is committed to ensuring the safety and protection of our community. In the unlikely event that the festival must be entirely postponed due to the return of heavier COVID-19 related statewide and national restrictions next January, all existing passes will be transferred to a new festival date. Interfusion believes this situation is unlikely to occur with the continued implementation and success of the U.S. National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response and Pandemic.
