  • Contest Organizers are the parties who ultimately own each event and competition. They will determine if their Contests, Classes, etc. will still continue on the dates originally planned or move to a future date. KCBS will work with any Organizer on their decision about how they choose to proceed. Organizers, please contact the KCBS office at 816-765-5891 to discuss.
  • We encourage the following:
  • Look to your local health authority for any recommendations in your area.
  • Visit the U.S. Center for Disease Control for tips on how to keep yourself safe at home, work, or other environments: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/workplace-school-and-home-guidance.pdf
  • Visit the World Health Organization for more information; particularly for our International members https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019
  • No handshaking or high-fives. Use non-touching methods of greeting one another.
  • If you’re not feeling well or think you may be in in the most impacted groups of people; please stay home. In that event, please contact the Organizer, Team and/or Judging coordinator of the event to give them notice that you won’t be attending.

  • Organizers to provide extra hand-washing stations and or Sanitizers.
  • Judges and Teams to bring their own sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer and/or wet wash cloths. Use of disinfecting wipes between rounds are encouraged.
  • Suggest Organizers and Reps either:
    • Provide 6 serving utensils per each box for all category rounds so that each Judge may have their own serving utensil to take their sample from the box. (Utensils are still not to be used for eating; just removing the sample from the box). No toothpicks, please.
    • TC to wear gloves and distribute samples onto Judges judging plate after Appearance score.
  • Organizers may wish to add additional Judges/Volunteers in case of cancellations from existing confirmed Judges/Volunteers.
