COVID-19

The Horn-Ball Tailgaters follow all health protocols established by the State of Texas. Since we tailgate on State property, we are not bound by City of Austin requirements, only by State mandated health requirements. Masks are not required during our events and disclosure of private health information is not required for entry. The Horn-Ball Texas Tailgaters strongly encourages everyone to do what's right and stay home if they have flu-like symptoms. If you are concerned about being in large crowds please do not attend our events. 

 

We will not allow anyone to discriminate against those that wish to wear a mask or perform any reasonable act that makes them comfortable. All guests are responsible for making the best health decision for themselves and their guests.  

Enhanced Cleaning/Sanitizing Protocols at our Events

Staff

All staff are subject to protocols and rules outlined in DSHS guidelines for restaurant employees, including, but not limited, to:

 

  • Enhanced training in appropriate cleaning and disinfection etiquette

  • Routine hand washing and sanitizing throughout the day

 

Cleaning and Sanitizing Measures

Although fomite transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is very rare, we are still committed to enhanced cleaning protocols at our events. We believe this is good for all, good for our equipment and we already spent the money on it, so why not?!

 

  • Hand sanitizer will be available for the duration of the event. There will also be hand sanitizing stations at check-in and at toilets

  • All sanitizers will exceed the minimum alcohol concentration guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control to effectively inactivate SARS-CoV-2 and reduce other pathogens present

  • All equipment, as well as portable toilets, will be treated with Nu-Foamicide via an electrostatic/misting cleaning system throughout the season, both prior to every event and after each event. Nu-Foamicide is a food-grade, commercial disinfectant and virucide registered under the EPA #10324-166-40672 as a disinfectant for use against SARS-CoV-2, MRSA, Staph, and Influenza. The solution will kill up to 99.99% of common illness causing pathogens while physically preventing future growth. It is safe for food-contact surfaces and is used in restaurants, schools, daycare centers and more

  • Portable toilets will be monitored for cleanliness throughout the event

  • Trash will be removed throughout the event and placed in designated areas

 

Food & Beverage

 

  • All food will be pre-packaged and single-use or served by attendee to each individual (no buffets or high frequency contact setups)

  • Food & beverage will use 100% disposable packaging

  • Condiments, cups, napkins & utensils will be single-use and disposable only

  • Any unused product will be disposed of properly
