MS Coast Convention Center Issues New Building Standards

The MS Coast Coliseum & Convention Center has set in place new guidelines for operations at their facility.

“On behalf of the MS Coast Coliseum Commission, regarding the Coronavirus (COVID_19), and the steps we are taking to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our guests and our team members.

Providing a safe environment for our clients, visitors, guests and staff is our top priority. Through public health organizations such as, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) we are staying abreast of the latest updates and developments as they occur. We are also in close communication with our local public health and government officials to determine what additional safeguards may need to be implemented. This is an evolving situation, and rest assured that any actions we take will be consistent with guidelines from these agencies. The MS Coast Coliseum & Convention Center continues to follow the precautionary guidelines of the Center for Disease Control and other public health organizations, which include:

  • Increased signage outlining advisable precautions (e.g. frequent handwashing, social distancing, the use of PPE, other various safety recommendations, etc.)
  • Regular sanitizing of high touch point areas such as, door handles, handrails, stair railings, seat arms, and elevator buttons.
  • Regular cleaning and sanitizing of facility public spaces and rest rooms.
  • Adding additional hand sanitizer stations in various locations throughout the facility.

Currently, the MS Coast Coliseum & Convention Center remains open for any events that choose to move forward at this time. The decision to postpone or cancel an event is at the discretion of show management. We support the decisions of show management when it comes to determining what is best for the health and safety of their attendees.”
