City administrator Michael Maresco said Marshfield has only a handful of reported cases at this point, but safety at the event is still a top priority.
“It’s an outdoor event,” Maresco commented, “people may want masks, people may want to forget their masks. They can get there and they may think they may want a mask.”
Masks will be distributed at the festival and hand washing stations will also be available throughout the site. Maresco also made some suggestions to the participants.
“Maybe try to refrain from kissing people at the gig and stuff like that,” he said, “so that you don’t have these close contacts with people.”
Meanwhile, Marshfield has reactivated its Covid-19 task force.
