Finally, Carlisle Events resolved its dispute on Friday, with the Pennsylvania Department of Health regarding the state withdrawing its suit related to the pandemic safety precautions at the Spring Carlisle automotive swap meet.
On Wednesday, the popular event opened at the Carlisle Fairgrounds, which was then allowed to continue to its scheduled conclusion on Saturday. In addition to that, the agreement also dealt with other planned automotive events at the Fairgrounds.
The suit sought a court injunction that was filed on Thursday, thus limiting the number of attendees to 250 at any one particular time. This was wholly in compliance with the governor’s present restriction limiting pandemic gatherings.
Carlisle Events said that all necessary safety measures have been put in place in order to protect show-goers, including sanitizing stations. Earlier this year, Carlisle Events had postponed the event and canceled its collector car auction as well due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
Moreover, the organizers have come into support claiming that the venue is large enough to incorporate more than 250 people who would be gathered in one place at a time. They also mentioned about the signs which had been made visible to people, urging them to thus maintain six- foot social distances in order to avoid spreading Covid-19.
However, no details have been released yet which would allow Carlisle Spring to remain open. Though a statement did release on Friday afternoon stating that the Pennsylvania Department of Health is committed to protecting the health of Pennsylvanians and at the same time are pleased to work with Carlisle Events towards improving its efforts to protect Spring Carlisle vendors, patrons, and the public from Covid-19.
