In the light of the developing coronavirus pandemic, Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and its host venues across the country are working together to implement additional protocols and procedures at our events in an effort to promote and protect the health and safety of all of our event attendees.

We will be implementing additional and easily accessible sanitization/hand washing stations throughout each venue and disposing of trash more frequently throughout each day.

Additionally, we are urging our event attendees to implement personal responsibility by washing their hands for 20 seconds or longer several times throughout the day, using hand sanitizing products as necessary, avoiding touching your eyes, nose & mouth, trying to avoid as much direct contact with other attendees as possible, covering their mouth with a tissue when coughing and then disposing of the tissue properly and avoiding attending an event if you are currently sick.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will work with our venues to regularly review our health & safety practices in alignment with the CDC. For more information on the prevention & treatment of the coronavirus, please visit:
