Temperature Screenings

Temperature screenings will be required for entry into Cake Expo 2021.

You will be required to undergo a temperature screening with no-touch thermometers before entry into events and locations at Cake Expo 2021, including the Exhibition Hall, Hands on Classes and Demonstrations, General Membership Meeting, Annual Representatives Meeting, etc. Once screened, you will receive a sticker for that portion of the days events and will not need to be rescreened until the afternoon sessions.

Based on guidance from health authorities, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.

Before you leave home, be sure to check the temperatures of everyone in your party —including yourself— as an extra layer of precaution.

Face Coverings

Face coverings are required for all Members and Attendees, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining (we will have a vendor selling masks if you wish to purchase on site). You may remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but you must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing.

All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) must:

  • Be made with at least 2 layers of breathable material
  • Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the attendee to remain hands-free

At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.

Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer’s mouth. These face coverings must:

  • Be a fabric face covering featuring a solid plastic panel containing no openings that is attached to the fabric on all sides using tight knit stitching
  • Meet all face covering requirements listed above

The use of face coverings is not a substitute for physical distancing.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By visiting Cake Expo 2021 in Fort Worth, TX, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Help keep each other healthy.
