The legal battle on whether Carlisle Events can remain open for Spring Carlisle over COVID-19 will continue Friday Afternoon after Thursday’s hearing was continued until today because of an apparent conflict of interest with one of the attorneys, according to a report from WGAL.com.
The lawsuit against Carlisle Events and Spring Carlisle was filed on Wednesday by the State of Pennsylvania’s Health Department which said the company was violating the 250-person limit during the Green Phase of Pennsylvania Governor Wolf’s reopening plan.
Carlisle Events maintains the state’s 250-person limit is for “social gatherings” like weddings and that as Carlisle Events is an “entertainment” company and they should be allowed to reopen with 50% capacity as some casinos and other venues have been allowed during the reopening plan. The company also contends that they are able to provide plenty of social distancing on the 86-acre fairgrounds and they are following all the guidelines that include employees wearing masks, displaying signs for social distancing, and offering plenty of hand sanitizer stations around the grounds.
Over the last two days, Carlisle’s Lance Miller has been providing updates and this morning he posted this video from the event grounds:
Spring Carlisle runs through Saturday, and the 2020 Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals are still a go for next weekend (June 26-27) at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds. You can help support Carlisle Events during this time by ordering tickets to their shows.
