8/12/21 Heat Advisory NOTICE

As a courtesy to our attendees, we are offering areas on the grounds to escape the heat and humidity during the show today. A heat advisory has been issued for the area from noon to 7:00 p.m. which means risk of heat stroke and dehydration from prolonged exposure. Real feel temps between 100 - 104 degrees expected. Please take precautions by drinking plenty of fluids, seek shelter from the sun, and seek medical attention if you experience symptoms of heat exhaustion such as weakness, dizziness, headache, excessive thirst, nausea/vomiting, muscle cramps, or loss of consciousness. If you experience any of these symptoms visit the First Aid Station/EMS team on the site, or call 911. We are suggesting taking frequent breaks, bring your water bottle or purchase from the food vendors. If a storm advisory is issued, we will announce on the PA System to return to your cars as the safest place to be during the storm. The show will likely reconvene, after lightening has left the area.

Heat Recovery Stations are located on the grounds at the Special Events Building (after 10:30 am at top of Main Street and 12th), the bottom of the Red Barn beside the Media entrance on north side, the Pasto Museum (A/C mask required), and the American Farm Family Learning Center of Main St.

COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 conditions around the country and in Pennsylvania, Penn State currently requires everyone — including those who are vaccinated and non-vaccinated — to wear masks indoors at all Penn State locations. Although Ag Progress Days takes place substantially Outdoors, masks are required in "closed" buildings, such as the Pasto Museum and the Office Headquarters building. In "open" exhibit buildings and exhibit tents, which have substantial airflow, masking is optional, but encouraged.  (last updated 8.5.21)
