COVID 19 SAFETY
Governor McMaster today announced that COVID-19 safety measures designed to mitigate risk measures regarding sale of alcohol and gatherings of 250 people or more will be rescinded Monday, March 1 in light of decreasing Covid-19 dashboard values in South Carolina. While, obviously, we no longer are required to have our “exemption certifications,” we will continue to employ common sense measures to keep participants and visitors safe at our ALL OUTDOOR event next weekend. While no longer mandated, mask use and social distancing will continued to be encouraged along with universal public health precautions to keep Irish Fest Camden a safe and fun family friendly event. And the timing of this great news and reduction of Covid-19 incidence immediately ahead of Irish Fest? – Never underestimate the Luck of the Irish… Sláinte Chugat!
