~ Press release issued Tuesday, March 17 by Gina Hilliard, president of the Luray-Page County Chamber of Commerce
The Luray-Page County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center continues to closely monitor the emergence of COVID-19. First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe workplace and take preventive measures to protect the health of Chamber members, visitors, employees and Page County residents.
Following the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control, the Governor of Virginia, and the Virginia Tourism Corporation; the L-PCCC Chamber/Visitor Center will be closed to walk-in visitation. This is effective as of Tuesday, March 17 through Friday, April 3.
We will reevaluate the situation on Friday, April 3 to determine if we are able to reopen and greet guests in person.
During this time, we will encourage visitors to go to our Website and Facebook page for current information on happenings in Page County. Visitors may ask questions by email or call in to the offices at (540) 743-3915 if they need to speak to someone directly.
The Luray-Page Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center employees will be on hand in the offices to answer phone calls and emails. We will have a brochure stand available just outside the office, which the L-PCCC employees will keep stocked and out of the weather from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
As your Chamber of Commerce, we are here to support the local business community, and ask your patience as we all work through this difficult time.
This closure includes the Train Museum and public restrooms, and the cancellation of all meetings scheduled for the Chamber/Visitor Center boardroom. All these will be reevaluated on Friday, April 3.
The Chamber will also be following the recommendations of the CDC and is cancelling all Chamber events until Friday, April 10. At that time, we will assess the situation and make a decision on resuming events.
We encourage our Chamber members, now more than ever to continue to support each other as we navigate this challenging time together.
