The city and event organizers say that they will follow all CDC and Douglas County Health Department guidelines for all the events during the weekend. “To the best of my knowledge, outdoor gatherings responsibly planned have not been traced back to be a source for COVID-19 infection. We have had good luck with outdoor events and will be taking proper precautions to ensure this event is held as safely as possible,” said Superior Mayor Jim Paine.
