Covid Policy

Last Updated: March 5, 2021

Make sure you’re up to date on our precautions before your next visit:
The health and safety of our patrons is our number one priority. We continue to monitor closely Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and public health advancements, and we have implemented operational procedures and protocols that you need to know before you make your next trip to Lone Star Park.

MASK POLICY FOR EVERYONE
Face coverings continue to be required for all guests ages 2 and up at all times, with the only exception being when in the act of eating or drinking, while seated or stationary. Those who fail to comply will be refused service and will be asked to leave the property.

Todas las personas mayores de 2 años deben llevar puesta la máscara en todo momento, cubriéndose la boca y la nariz, aunque se encuentre adentro o afuera.
La única excepción es en el acto de comer o beber.

Temperature Screenings: All patrons and employees entering the Lone Star Park Grandstand or Bar & Book will be checked for temperature. Individuals with a temperature at or over 100.4°F (38°C) will not be allowed to enter Lone Star Park or Bar & Book. Employees are required to wear protective coverings over their nose and mouth at all times.

Physical Distancing. Guests need to practice physical distancing leaving six feet between themselves and people not traveling with them while standing in lines, using elevators or moving around the property. Restaurant tables and other layouts will be arranged to ensure appropriate distancing. Bar chairs have been rearranged and seating has been removed from some tables to create additional distance between individuals.

When exiting towards the track from the Grandstand, you must keep the area near the exit doors clear. Everyone must spread out along the apron making sure to social distance.

Al salir hacia la pista desde la Tribuna, debe mantener despejada el área cercana a las puertas de salida. Todos deben extenderse a lo largo del delantal asegurándose de la distancia social.

Enhanced Cleaning and Disinfecting Protocols. Enhanced cleaning procedures will be followed, including the use of electrostatic sprayers and EPA-certified chemicals during daily closures as well as more frequent manual disinfection processes with EPA-registered disinfectant on high-touch surfaces like door handles, railings, elevator buttons, ATMs, self-serve wagering machines and other hard surfaces. The number of hand sanitizer dispensers has been increased and will be placed at guest and employee entrances and exits as well as high-contact areas.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What happens when maximum occupancy is reached at Bar & Book?
If maximum capacity is reached, patrons will be asked to wait in clearly marked queue lines that have been set up at the entrance and spaced six feet apart to allow for physical distancing as patrons wait to enter the facility. As other individuals leave the facility, individuals in line will be able to enter the building. Individuals who exit the facility will be required to enter the queue lines for re-entry into Bar & Book.

What happens when maximum occupancy is reached at the Grandstand for Live Racing?
If maximum capacity is reached, patrons will be turned away. It is highly recommended that everyone purchase their tickets in advance, including for General Admission. All areas of the Grandstand will have a set capacity and once tickets are sold we will not be able to resell tickets if another patron leaves.

Can I enter Bar & Book from the Live Racing area and vice versa?
Due to our needs to keep very accurate occupancy counts within each side of our business independently, we will ask that everyone who wishes to visit another area will need to do so by exiting out the front door and then entering the other building at that building’s main entrance.
