Fair Board President Kim Meyers said they have been receiving a lot of questions regarding the fair, so it was easier to address all the questions at a news conference.

This news conference comes after the mayor of Wellington, Hans Schneider, wrote an open letter to the Lorain County Fair Board requesting they cancel the fair to protect the public from COVID-19.
