Guidelines for Athletic Fields and Resuming Youth Sports
The State of South Carolina recognizes the value of team sports as a form of recreation that provides positive impacts on both individual physical health and the social health of our communities. The guidelines were established with the intent to balance the physical and social benefits of team sports with the overall needs for public health and safety.
Guidelines for Re-Opening Festivals and Special Events
The recommendations set forth in the following pages are specific to the reopening of community festivals and special events in South Carolina and are intended for use by event planners, local officials, participating vendors, entertainers and other personnel working with the planning and execution of these events. Attendees of community festivals and other special events should follow the personal health and safety guidelines issued by the CDC and SCDHEC as well as local health authorities and specific guidelines provided by the event they attend. These recommendations are not intended for private gatherings like weddings, conventions, conferences, reunions, or athletic tournaments.
Guidelines for Reopening Attractions
These recommendations are intended to provide general operating guidelines for all types of attraction facilities, including but not limited to aquariums, zoos, museums, historic buildings and sites, water parks, amusement parks, live production theaters and movie theaters.
The guidelines detailed in this plan are driven by three major considerations: safety, gradual and phasing. Full opening of hotels will need to allow lead time for staff to be rehired and trained, the food supply chain to be fully and normally operational, safety measures to be implemented, including providing ample time for operators to get the necessary Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and do a deep re-clean and sanitization of the entire facility using the CDC-recommended guidelines during COVID-19 to keep staff and guests safe.
