The UNI-Dome Antique Spectacular Vintage Market for March 20-22, 2020 in Cedar Falls, Iowa is officially canceled due to the COVID-19 concerns. Melting Pot Productions received tremendous support to go on with the show, but prioritizing the antique show community’s safety and health remains a priority.
We will return to Cedar Falls March 19-21, 2021.
Melting Pot Productions is following the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) and yielding to local health officials regarding any mandates. Our top priority is keeping our vendors, patrons, staff and community safe and healthy.
COVID-19 symptoms are similar to the cold or flu, and may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to the virus. Be vigilant as severe cases may lead to pneumonia, kidney failure or death.
ANSWER YES/NO TO THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:
- Are you sick today with fever (100.4 degrees F or higher), new cough with sore throat, or new breathing difficulties?
- Have you or anyone in your household traveled to China, Iran, Italy or South Korea in the last 2 weeks?
The World Health Organization (WHO) advises the following prevention methods:
Wash Hands Frequently
Use soap and water for visibly dirty hands or an alcohol-based hand rub frequently for non-visibly dirty hands.
Practice Respiratory (Cough/Sneeze) Hygiene
When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with a tissue or flexed elbow. Discard tissues immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub.
Maintain Social Distancing
Maintain at least 3 feet distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus.
Avoid Touching Eyes, Nose & Mouth
Hands touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself.
Seek Medical Care Early
If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early and tell your healthcare provider if you have traveled in areas in China, Iran, Italy or South Korea where the virus has been reported, or if you have been in close contact with someone who has traveled from China, Iran, Italy or South Korea and has respiratory symptoms.
If you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within China, Iran, Italy or South Korea, still seek medical care and be sure to carefully practice basic respiratory and hand hygiene and stay home until you are recovered, if possible.
Animal Proximity Precautions
Practice general hygiene measures when visiting farms, live animal markets, wet markets, animal product markets or contact with wild animals. Ensure regular hand washing with soap and potable water after touching animals and animal products.
Avoid eating raw or undercooked animal products. Handle raw meat, milk or animal organs with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.
