Prior to memorial day weekend, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster stated that public attractions are now allowed to reopen throughout South Carolina.
The facilities themselves cover a large span of locales. From zoos and museums to parks and go-kart tracks, people are once again allowed to enjoy their services. This excludes nightclubs, bowling alleys, sporting events, and any other indoor activities where you could be within close proximity to others. The 6-feet-apart social distancing rule is still suggested.
The Carowinds amusement park is excluded as they’ve chosen to remain closed.
McMaster announced that youth and adult sporting leagues are now welcome to host practices. In Master’s guidelines for re-opening, he states “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.” Outdoor activities, especially in the summer, are a large part of the South Carolina community.
Effective May 31st, practices return. Effective June 15th, games and competitions return. This slow integration is in response to coronavirus and public health recommendations.
McMaster reinforces communication, sanitation, and hydration during this transition. With these pillars in place, he is hopeful sporting events will return in a safely this summer.
