A handwashing station.

This year the Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo will have more hand-washing stations, more hand sanitizer bottles and more room for people to spread out.

As a way to organize a fair that is safe against the spread of COVID-19, the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center will only sell 25,000 tickets a day for each of the five days of the annual event, said Geoff Hinds, fair director. That’s half the usual number of daily admission tickets.
