COVID-19 Guidelines for Parade Attendees

While taking part in the 2021 Parade of Homes, safety measures to protect the general public are important. The Parade of Homes pledges to follow all local, county, and state guidance throughout the event in an effort to keep our attendees, builders, and others protected.  As an attendee of the event, we ask that you follow these guidelines:

  • Stay home if you are potentially sick. Attendees are responsible for not attending if they are, or may be, infected with the COVID-19 virus or have been around any infected person(s). It is suggested that those with compromised immune systems or other vulnerable populations not participate in-person.
  • Check status of home on website before visiting. While Parade homes are typically open during the advertised dates and hours, sometimes there are circumstances that prevent a home from being open to the public.  To access up-to-the-minute information on the status of an individual home, please see each individual home listing.
  • Maintain social distance at all times. Maintain 6’ social distancing guidelines while waiting to enter the home, while talking to those working in the home, and while touring the home. This may mean you need to wait to enter a hallway or a room until others ahead of you have left the area.
  • Do not touch. Refrain from touching surfaces and handles in the home.
  • Bring your own PPE. Consider bringing your own face mask to wear while in the home. Some Parade homes may require them to enter based on current mandates.
  • Shorten home visits. Consider limiting your time within a home to 15 minutes in order to improve the flow of traffic.
  • Bring hand sanitizer. Sanitize hands prior to entering and immediately upon leaving a home.

As guests in these homes, it is the responsibility of every attendee to adhere to the protocol and instructions provided at each home. Ignoring or otherwise violating property rules may result in the necessary closure of a home from public access. Your interest in the event is greatly appreciated. We hope you enjoy the tour while still being mindful of the current health situation we find ourselves in.
