Coronavirus Update & Resources
June 25, 2020
How It Impacts Us
In compliance with national, state and local public health orders and recommendations, and in the best interest of our guests, team members, members and the greater Charlotte community, the NASCAR Hall of Fame will be closed to the general admission public, private events and school groups until further notice.
Recognizing this is a very dynamic and fluid situation, we will continue to monitor information from public health experts and make decisions regarding our operations accordingly.
We are working with our event and group-related customers who were scheduled to visit the NASCAR Hall of Fame to accommodate their needs, with the hope we can reschedule for future dates.
- NASCAR Hall Memberships will be extended for the length of time the NASCAR Hall of Fame is closed. Racing Insiders Tours will be rescheduled for future dates.
- General admission tickets purchased in advance will be honored at any other date.
What You Need to Know
N.C. Governor Roy Cooper announced that the statewide Phase 2 ‘Safer at Home’ Order will continue for another three weeks through July 17 at 5 p.m. In addition, North Carolinians will be required to wear face coverings in public (both indoor and outdoor), when physical distancing is not possible. View Phase 2 Extension FAQs.
During this “Phase 2” of reopening, restaurants can open for on-premise dining at 50 percent capacity with six feet distance between each group of customers. Certain businesses such as bars, nightclubs, gyms, indoor entertainment venues, playgrounds, etc., will remain closed. Mass gatherings are limited to 10 people indoors or 25 people outdoors.
Overwhelming evidence shows that wearing a face covering can greatly reduce the spread of COVID-19, especially from people who have it and don’t know it yet. This is a simple way to control this virus while we protect ourselves and the people around us. Governor Cooper urged everyone to be a leader in wearing face coverings and encouraged businesses to be strong in enforcing it.
Our organization has an internal task force closely monitoring recommendations and actions coming from the local, state and federal levels regarding stay at home orders and possible return to workplace scenarios. Team members on this committee are leading the efforts in developing return-to-workplace protocols and safety guidelines to address operational processes and human contact health risk mitigations.
