COVID-19: Are you ArtsReady?

Preparing for Potential Impact of the Coronavirus 


This content snippet comes from South Arts’ invaluable ArtsReady initiative. South Carolina is in a prime location to be affected by natural disasters of the tropical variety, and in the past couple of years had its experience with those… not to mention flooding, whether as a result of tropical systems or a standalone event.

But being ArtsReady isn’t just about weather; it can also encompass epidemics/pandemics and geological disasters. Coronavirus is perhaps the hottest topic of the day, so we wanted to share this with our readers. Also, please wash your hands. A lot. 


Are you ready for a temporary closure? 

In Asia and Europe, public gatherings including performances, museums and festivals have been cancelled and shuttered to help limit the spread of the Coronavirus.

While the spread and impact of the virus here in the U.S. is not yet known, you should have a plan in the event that, in the interest of public health, your organization needs to delay or cancel events or temporary close.
