March 13, 2020. The Beaufort History Museum plans to conduct its annual Civil War Encampment on Saturday, March 14. However, in light of ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19 and for the safety of our visitors, precautions are in order.
We ask those planning to attend Saturday's event to refrain from coming if any of the following conditions apply:
♦ You are exhibiting any flu-like symptoms or symptoms of an upper respiratory infection (shortness of breath, coughing, fatigue, or fever).
♦ You have visited China, Italy, Iran, South Korea or any other U.S. city that has experienced an outbreak in the past 14 to 30 days.
♦ You have had contact with anyone who has been infected with COVID-19 or is suspected of having COVID-19.
While at the event, please practice common-sense preventative measures, such as covering your mouth when you sneeze or cough, avoiding shaking hands, and maintaining social distance from other visitors. This will not only prevent the spread of disease but give other visitors peace of mind. Also note that the virus poses a greater risk to the elderly; and those with respiratory disease, diabetes and other illnesses than to the general population. These people, or those in frequent contact with those who have these conditions should consider the risk before attending this or any other event where many people might gather.

Our mission is to preserve, promote and interpret the experiences of our past that influence us now and in the future.
