Your Health & Safety are What Matters Most to us

Below are some frequently asked questions about our upcoming in-person shows to help you feel prepared for your journey to one of our Vet Shows.

What health and safety measures are the US Vet Shows team putting in place for the shows?

US Vet Shows is committed to the health and safety of everyone who is at any of our events – including attendees, vendors and staff. Measures include:

  • Required face coverings

  • Clear and unambiguous health and safety messaging

  • Strict sanitization and cleaning procedures

  • Hand sanitizing stations

  • Temperature screening

  • Layout and spaces that promote physical distancing

  • Exhibitor guidelines and booth design standards

Will there be daily temperature screenings before people enter the building?

Yes, there will be daily contactless temperature screenings conducted by Digatherm by ICI, providing thermal cameras that detect accurate temperatures at 6-12 ft away and will allow temperature checking at a safe distance, helping protect staff, attendees and vendors..

What happens if my temperature is above the required temperature for entry?

If an individual has a temperature that is 100.4F or above, then the individual will be denied entry into the venue/show.

Will face coverings be required?

Yes, everyone will be required to wear a face covering. A proper face covering at minimum should fit properly and snuggly, fully covering your nose and mouth and secure under your chin.

What if I am unable to wear a face covering due to a disability?

If you are unable to wear an approved face covering due to a disability, please contact the US Vet Shows team. In appropriate circumstances, management may allow for the use of full-face shields in lieu of an approved face covering. Please note: like masks, face shields must cover the entire nose and mouth, extend below the chin, and fit properly. To request an accommodation or for additional questions regarding accessibility, please email our Operations Manager, Mary L. Cappello at

Will there be opportunities to sanitize my hands on the show floor?

Yes, hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout the show floor.

What should I do if I don’t feel well the morning of the event?

If you feel sick, please stay home! Symptoms include, but not limited to: 

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

What if I don’t feel well when I am at the show?

If you develop COVID-19 symptoms during the show or encounter any concerns regarding suspected COVID-19 exposure, you should report to show personnel.  You should limit close contact with others until show personnel are able to further assess and advise you. Show personnel follow local public health authority guidelines in responding to COVID-19 emergencies and are available daily. Each event will have three certified COVID Compliance Officers from the US Vet Show team in order to adhere to the latest rules and regulations.

Will food and drink still be offered on the show floor?

Yes, all food will be individually packaged. The catering staff are required to wear gloves, face coverings, disposable aprons and undergo a temperature screening upon entry each day. Tables will follow appropriate physical distancing guidelines (6 feet or more) and we ask that once you start eating or drinking that you remain stationary and remove your face covering only in designated food service areas.

Does US Vet Shows have a “No Handshake” policy in place?

Yes, please do not shake another person’s hand. A wave from 6 feet away is encouraged!

If I’m traveling from outside of the United States, is a negative COVID-19 test required?

Starting January 26, 2021 the U.S. government requires all international airline passengers to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test before boarding flights to the U.S. We will continue to update these FAQs as more information about international travel becomes available, however, please monitor the US Department of State website and the CDC website for official guidance.

What can I do personally to help protect myself and others at US Vet Shows?

Follow the health and safety guidelines, including wearing your face covering properly, washing your hands, maintaining proper distance by staying 6 feet away from one another and following the instructions of our safety and security teams. Above all, we ask that everyone at US Vet Shows be patient and respect each other’s safety and wellbeing.

I have a specific question regarding Health and Safety at US Vet Shows who should I speak to?

If you have any questions or concerns regarding anything to do with the show please contact: Operations Manager, Mary L. Cappello at

The guidelines contained here are based on information currently available regarding COVID-19 and local or state guidelines with respect to large gatherings in the particular community.
