Information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The safety and security of our patrons is our number one priority. Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in conjunction with Mayor Tecklenburg and the City of Charleston, the Charleston Gaillard Center’s Board and Management Team have closed the Martha and John M. Rivers Performance Hall.

We are working to finalize safety protocols as federal, state, and local governments, as well as the CDC, release guidelines. Additionally, we are working directly with the International Venue Association to develop best practices to ensure we follow appropriate measures for patron safety. 

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.
