The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA) has closed its venues and offices, including the Charlotte Convention Center, NASCAR Hall of Fame, Bojangles' Entertainment Complex, Visit Charlotte and Visitor Info Centers in the best interests of our employees and in compliance with national, state, and local orders and recommendations regarding mass gatherings, teleworking and social distancing. CRVA employees, including Charlotte Convention Center and Visit Charlotte team members, are working remotely during this time and are available should you need them.

As of March 17, all restaurants, bars and other dining establishments have been ordered closed except for takeout, drive-through and delivery.

A statewide Stay-at-Home-Order has been issued by Governor Roy Cooper, which began March 30 at 5 p.m. and remains in effect through April 29. The Order reduces the size of gatherings to 10 people.

The CRVA is also following CDC guidance for large events and mass gatherings, which recommends organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more through May 10.
