DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - State Fair of Texas officials don’t want Dallas’ Ebola case to affect this year’s attendance. Thus, they are making changes in an effort to keep people safe and coming through the gates. Even Big Tex is in on the process, adding “Remember always wash your hands before eating,” to his greeting.
“I think people wait all year to come out to the State Fair of Texas and if they don’t come out this year it’s a missed opportunity to enjoy it,” said Karissa Schuler with the State Fair of Texas.
With more than 3 million people crowding the Midway during the next three weeks, fair officials plan to install extra hand sanitizer stations starting tomorrow. That’s welcome news to people such as Kristi Lash.
