WonderStruck Safe Reopening Powered By Germ-X
WonderStruck in Cleveland will follow the recommended health and safety guidelines put forth by state and county authorities. Additionally, the festival has aligned with St. Louis-based Germ-X to create an aggressive and innovative reopening platform based on the basic principles of responsible health and hygiene. A recent NBC News story ranked Germ-X the #1 Hand Sanitizer “meeting CDC guidance, shared by doctors.”
“We wanted the very best partner to power our safe reopening,” stated WonderStruck executive producer Steve Lindecke. “Germ-X is #1. In our opinion, there is no better product and they will have a heavy presence at the festival.”
“On behalf of the entire Germ-X team, I want to communicate to fans that Germ-X is excited to support safe reopening of music festivals across the country,” said Darren Baker, President and Chief Operating Officer at Vi-Jon, LLC, the maker of Germ-X. “We will be providing complimentary samples of Germ-X to festivalgoers at entry points. We will also be providing other Germ-X products as additional support during WonderStruck.”
WonderStruck is excited to confirm that University Hospitals will continue as the festival’s partner for medical support and emergency medical services.
If COVID-19 delays the festival, we have held dates in September. If COVID-19 forces a postponement or cancellation of the July festival, ticket refunds will absolutely be an option for each buyer.
“Until we meet toward the end of July, we need to continue work together and follow CDC and ODH guidelines,” commented Lindecke. “Wear a mask, Wash your hands and Watch your distance. And when your name is called, please give careful thought to receiving one of the approved vaccines.”
