World Ag Expo is set to host attendees and exhibitors from across the country and around the world in just two weeks. 

Now they will also prepare to guard against the newest coronavirus emerging in China. 

Show officials are working with local, state and federal officials to monitor the situation and develop a plan on the show grounds. 

A spokesperson for the show says, “The health and safety of everyone at our show is our top priority.” 

World Ag Expo is advising precautions for attendees that closely match recommendations for flu season. 

Those recommendations include hand washing, covering coughs, staying home if ill, and contacting a physician if symptoms arise. 

Travelers attending World Ag Expo who become ill should contact the local health department where they are staying, and report their illness, as well. 

World Ag Expo boasts an international farm show atmosphere, with more than 100,000 attendees each year in California.
