GLEF Releases Updated COVID-19 Protocols

With the Traverse City Horse Shows Great Lakes Equestrian Festival (GLEF) underway at Flintfields Horse Park, management has released updated COVID-19 protocols.  If you are attending the horse show, please review the updated protocol here prior to arriving at the show grounds.  Updates in RED are newly added as of July 15.

The primary update states:

If you are denied access to the venue due to your exhibiting a temperature or COVID-19 symptoms, you must present a negative test for COVID-19 before you will be permitted to enter the venue or, if it has been ten days since the day you were denied access (the onset of symptoms), you must show a 72-hour period of no fever while off any meds that lower fevers (NSAIDs or Tylenol). If you have been in contact with someone who has tested  positive for COVID-19 within the last two weeks, you must self-isolate for 14 days.

Management also has released a letter reminding competitors of the following:

  • Temperatures will continue to be taken for everyone entering the venue (officials, staff, exhibitors, grooms, trainers, etc.)  Access will not be permitted for anyone exhibiting a fever, COVID-19 symptoms, or those that have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last two weeks.
  • Please continue to wear face masks while at the venue — this includes while driving or sitting in golf carts.  
  • Face masks are not required when mounted.
