As 2021 progresses, the likelihood of in-person events will increase in wildly varying degrees, forms, and sizes. Some of these events, you’ll hear about and learn about from 95.3 The Bull over the air, online, from our social media and more, so we wanted to make sure we are clear about our role in these events, and our policies regarding them in the current Coronavirus reality in which they will exist…

The short version:

At this time, there remains an inherent health and safety risk in attending any and all public events due to COVID-19. 95.3 The Bull & Mid-West Family strongly encourage any person considering attending any in-person event, to carefully consider all current National, State, and Local health recommendations and review all health and safety plans and policies provided directly by event organizers before attending in-person, along with any ticket refund policies for ticketed events before you make a ticket purchase.

In most instances, 95.3 The Bull and Mid-West Family are not the event organizers, but a promotional partner to help market these events for the 3rd party organizers. We will always carefully consider the events and the strength of their health and safety plans before we agree to promote an event, but as we’ve all learned together: situations / health guidelines are ever-changing, sometimes even day-to-day. You should always seek the most current information from local health authorities, and the most current information regarding the event directly from the event organizers themselves. We will do our best to provide organizer contact information along with any promotional information, when possible, to assist in this process.

To avoid any confusion, all inquiries regarding an event, its policies, and plans will be directed to the event organizer(s).

Any register-to-win contest taking place exclusively at an in-person event may be entered without attending by emailing thebull@953thebull.com with the contest name in the subject line and your name, address, phone, and date of birth in the body of the email.

Furthermore, for events organized by 95.3 The Bull and Mid-West Family…

The coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact.
