Tioga County Fair: Food, Fun, COVID Vaccines
In spite of high heat and continued growth in the number of people getting COVID-19, some traditions are resuming this week.
Tioga County kicked off the 55th county fair this week.
The $10 admission includes unlimited rides, grandstand access parking and access to rides and events.
Attendees August 10 noted that some people were wearing masks in spite of the heat and the event being held outdoors and most were observing social distancing protocols.
COVID-19 vaccines are being provided at the fair August from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Laurel Health booth.
The Tioga County Department of Public Health is offering the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine to anyone 18 and older August 11 at the Pole Barn on the fairgrounds. The shots are being administered without appointment from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and people getting the vaccine will also get a $25 Amazon gift card.
