COVID-19 Safety Plan for Publishers’ Way Exhibitors

We encourage, but do not require, all Publishers’ Way exhibitors to be fully vaccinated in advance of attending the festival. This will increase the safety of you, your peers, volunteers, attendees, and our festival presenters.

We require all vendors to pre-screen for COVID-19 before attending the festival. You can do this by taking the self-assessment listed on the Ontario Government’s website or by referring to the self-screening assessment posters that will be available at each event. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been required to isolate, please do not attend any festival events. Please contact [email protected] if you cannot attend.

We encourage, but do not require, that all exhibitors wear masks/face coverings while indoors or where physical distancing cannot be maintained.

We recommend that you frequently wash your hands with soap and water and have hand sanitizer with you for times when a handwashing station is not available.

If you develop COVID-19 symptoms while at the festival: If you drove yourself to the event and are well enough to drive, please notify event staff, return home immediately, and follow your local public health protocols.

The above safety protocols relate to the participation of Publishers’ Way Exhibitors at the 2022 Eden Mills Writers’ Festival. The EMWF’s full COVID-19 Safety Plan can be reviewed here.
