Capital City/Lake Murray Country Remains #TourismStrong

While all of us are busy practicing social distancing during the Coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis, our staff is busy providing updated information on our website and across social media. As this crisis is evolving rapidly and impacting destinations around the globe, our community is pulling together supporting local restaurants, golf courses, our parks and still enjoying sunsets on Lake Murray. Please continue to enjoy our beautiful outdoor resources while practicing proper social distancing.

Our Visitors Center remains closed to the public but behind the doors our staff is preparing for marketing campaigns that are ready to release for a stimulating and quick release in a moments notice. We are closely monitoring changes and developments as they occur and are regularly having conversations with leaders and experts in our industry. We will continue to share the most timely and accurate information possible.

Capital City/Lake Murray Country has several national fishing events scheduled to come to Lake Murray in April, May and June. We are happy to report these have all been rescheduled; so at this point, we have only lost some family vacationers.

As with many attractions and tourism industry related businesses, we have made financial cuts to keep the organization sound. We are also continuing many meetings through teleconferencing.

Many attractions and events are either temporarily closed or postponed so please use our website, as a source of information. If you are currently in the destination or planning for future travels, we strongly advise you to contact the business and/or organization directly for the most up to date information.

Our best wishes to everyone in this region. Stay safe, stay well and if traveling practice these travel tips.

The primary source of information on COVID-19 in South Carolina is DHEC's website at this link.

As of Wednesday, March 25, 2020, SC’s Governor Henry McMaster requests all out-of-state visitors to South Carolina who plan to spend two or more nights in the state to self-quarantine for two weeks immediately upon arrival. The request is intended to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus.) The state’s priority is the health and safety of all individuals. South Carolina is taking bold steps now in order to keep everyone safe and eventually return to a preferred destination in months to come.
