Summer Concert Series: Singing on the Square Makes Announcement Regarding July 17, 2020 Show
The Athens-Limestone County Tourism Association, organizer of the Summer Concert Series: Singing on the Square, have been monitoring the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) public health crisis in Limestone County.
As with all decisions, weighing of the benefits against the harms including the well-being of our citizens – our friends, family and neighbors who are elderly, newborn, battling cancer, living with immune conditions, living with heart conditions or diabetes and other underlying health concerns; ...
... while also considering the well-being of our economy and the potential impact should a rollback of operation for restaurants, shops, and other facilities in the community by order of the Governor Kay Ivey and Alabama Public Health occur; and the potential of a reinstatement of a "Shelter in Place Order" by Governor Kay Ivey and Alabama Public Health due to the present and continuing increases in the number of SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) cases in Limestone County and throughout the state of Alabama that has had the Alabama Public Health authorities presently labeling Limestone county a "VERY HIGH RISK" for transmission preceding the July 4th weekend.
With these many factors and more in motion during this public health crisis, Athens-Limestone County Tourism Association has determined the remainder of the Summer Concert Series: Singing on the Square should be canceled to aid in efforts to reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) in the best interest of our community.
"It's not a decision that was come to lightly, as so many in the Athens-Limestone community are desperately seeking some normalcy during these uncertain times. As stewards in our community, Athens-Limestone County Tourism Association made the decision out of abundance of caution for the greater interest of our community with hopes that this event, along with many others, can return in 2021 to a happy, healthy and prosperous Athens-Limestone," said Cayce Lee, Social Media Specialist of Athens-Limestone County Tourism Association.
