Based on CDC guidance, and to limit any potential risks to our clients and team members, some of our Manheim locations require face masks be worn while indoors, regardless of vaccination status which includes the lobby, offices, and other indoor areas but masks do not have to be worn when outdoors or in the arena. Other locations do not require masks for individuals as long as they are fully vaccinated; however, those not fully vaccinated are required to wear masks while indoors. Please check with each location prior to visiting to be sure proper safety guidelines are being followed.
All locations require visitors to complete either a COVID-19 Related Access Form (CRAF) or a Visitor Form prior to arriving to a location. It is important that you check with each location to determine which form is needed. When filling out either form, please take note of the following:
