AAOTH COVID Response Plan – Oklahoma City

Face Coverings: face coverings are required indoors for staff, vendors and attendees even if there is no current city mandate.

Social Distancing: everyone is asked to socially distance while shopping, eating, resting or participating in any other activity while at the event.

Health Assessments: Staff and vendors are mandated to ensure the health of their personnel and prohibit anyone with COVID-19 symptoms from attending or working the event. The public is reminded also to not attend if they are/have been recently sick, are experiencing any COVID-like symptoms or have a fever of 100.4 or higher.

Operational Measures

  • Floor plan:
    • The show will take place in four buildings:  Oklahoma Expo Hall, Pavilion, Centennial and Modern Living – to maximize floor space, and allow for outside space, fresh air and relief of crowds when moving to/from sections of shopping.
    • Booths will be socially distanced.
    • Aisles will be designated as one-way.
    • Entrance/exit flow will be separated and clearly marked at each building.
  • Occupancy:
    • building occupancy will be monitored by hired OKCPD to assist with reduced occupancy – asking patrons to visit other buildings or wait a few minutes outside when crowd flow necessitates.
  • Sanitizing:
    • Sanitizing stations will be available and vendors and the public are asked to help by providing or bringing their own as well.
    • Additional housekeeping will be dedicated to specific zones and areas to increase the frequency of cleaning protocols.

Smart Shopping Tips

  • DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU HAD COVID-19 OR HAVE EXPERIENCED SYMPTOMS (WITHOUT A FALSE TEST RESULT) IN THE LAST 14 DAYS!
  • Don’t forget your mask.
  • Purchase your tickets in advance / online.
  • Attend later – shop after 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday or at 11 a.m. on Sunday when it is less crowded.
  • Use the mobile map instead of the paper map found at aaoth.com/map.
  • Start on a random aisle, minding the one-way signs.
  • Bring your own sanitizer.
