Coronavirus Canceled Events

Based on guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the situation as it stands in South Carolina today RCRC has decided to act in an abundance of caution and concern for the wellbeing of our patrons and team members.

As you know, COVID-19 cases are occurring around the world, including right here in South Carolina.  The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) officials are working to prevent the local spread of the illness as much as possible.

RCRC continues to closely follow the guidance updated daily from the CDC and SC DHEC in regard to the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We encourage you to maintain the daily routines of protecting yourself against illness by using good health practices like washing your hands frequently, covering your cough, and appropriately disposing of tissues and other items contaminated with respiratory droplets. Individuals with signs of illness should stay home and not attend public gatherings.  Due to the rapidly changing situation, the agency’s response is subject to change. Updates will be provided as soon as they are made available.
