Information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As patron safety remains our first priority, we have implemented numerous measures to allow up to 250 guests to safely gather within the Martha and John M. Rivers Performance Hall.

Please visit our Patron Safety page for information, additional guidelines, and procedures for sanitation and cleaning as well as building modifications, new equipment, and changes in how we’ll host our events.

We encourage patrons to assist in preventing the spread of any illness by thoroughly and carefully washing your hands regularly, staying home if you have a fever, cough, or other serious symptoms, and monitoring local news for advice about keeping yourself and loved ones safe in case of an outbreak.

Thank you for your continued support of the Charleston Gaillard Center.
