Odd Market addresses Covid-19

Phillip Dane

To our Supporters, Vendors, and Partners,

First and foremost, we are sending our thoughts and prayers to everyone struggling with the Covid-19 virus. Whether or not you or someone you know has tested positive, this is a scary time for many.

“Though the headlines may be worrisome, experts continue to say the overall coronavirus risk in the U.S. remains low. At-risk groups are older individuals and those with underlying health conditions, who should take extra precautions. The latest expert guidance indicates that for the overwhelming majority, it’s OK to live, work, play and travel in the U.S.”

Odd Market’s highest priority is always the safety of our guests, vendors, and staff. We know you continue to hear and see news reports about the coronavirus, or COVID-19, and some of its effects around the world. The Odd Market team is closely monitoring this evolving situation and is in regular contact with health agencies for information and guidance.

Odd Market Events will continue to welcome guests in accordance with our existing schedules, and we continue to implement preventive measures as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as our own health and hygiene protocols. All our events have high standards of cleanliness, which assist with illness prevention. We employ rigorous sanitation standards and robust cleaning procedures, including:

  1. Sanitizing the Inflatables and attractions throughout the evening.
  2. Hand Sanitizer Stations will be at each of the rides and throughout the event.
  3. All the food trucks will adhere to the food safety guidelines under these circumstances.
  4. No Vendors or Staff will be permitted to work if they are not 100% well.

With that said, Shelly and I are watching the situation throughout the day, every day. We take this very seriously. As parents to 5 kids ranging in age from 9 years old to 34, we too have to evaluate what we feel comfortable doing with our kids so we get it. We are hopeful that by May 15th, things will have calmed and the virus has become a thing of the past.

Be safe. Be smart. Be well.

Best Wishes,

Phillip & Shelly Dane

As for Odd Market Events we are NOT canceling Odd Nights at The Autry or the Los Feliz Flea BUT we are encouraging Vendors and Attendees to adhere to the CDC and Los Angeles County recommendations

  • Instruct any participants or event staff to not attend if they have any respiratory symptoms (cough or runny nose) or fever regardless of the presumed cause.
  • Encourage participants to minimize close contact (e.g., recommend no handshaking or hugging).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Now on to the weather…
The Los Feliz Flea

We will most likely be closed this coming Saturday, March 14, due to the weather forecast of rain throughout the day.
We will make the announcement by tomorrow at 2pm and will have a post on the website: theoddmarket.com
