ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Center in the Square in Downtown Roanoke plans to reopen on July 1 after closing back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The organization accepted a donation from Green Home Solutions for a hospital-grade disinfection of the building, estimated at $10,000. Staff will be required to adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear face masks. In addition to occupancy limits, new signage and sanitizing stations will be in place.
“We are excited about welcoming our guests back into Center in the Square on July 1st, 2020. We have truly missed them. It has been lonely not having an atrium, rooftop, and museums full of families learning and creating memories. It seems that even our aquatic life in the six aquariums miss seeing children and families. We have been very meticulous in preparing the space for reopening following CDC and the Governor’s Guidelines to reopen.”Jim Sears, President of Center in the Square
After Center in the Square’s closure in March, the organization began offering online content through social media and their website including virtual tours, educational activities, and games. Their virtual content can be found on Facebook and by visiting the “On Demand” page on their website.
