COVID-19 Statement

In light of ongoing concerns about reports of the COVID-19 (formerly Novel Coronavirus) outbreak, Explore St. Louis and The America’s Center continues to monitor the situation very closely. While the risk of contracting the coronavirus in the U.S. is low, we will follow the advice of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Should the situation change, we will issue periodic updates as necessary. Please know that America’s Center’s first priority is the health, safety and well-being of everyone involved with any event that is held in our facility, and our community.

At this time there have been no confirmed cases of the outbreak in our area, however, we will continue to monitor updates that are provided by the CDC and will keep you updated on any new travel advisories both domestic and international or other state and local government mandates. You can also find additional information on the CDC’s website at

We have appointed Col. Reggie Harris, VP of Public Safety and Guest Service, and Nila Tuckson, VP of Human Resources, to lead our organization in obtaining and providing up to date information to our employees and clients.

Additionally throughout America’s Center, there will be an increase of alcohol-based hand sanitizers for attendees and staff and an enhanced housekeeping team servicing commonly used surfaces (e.g. doorknobs, ledges, escalator hand rails, elevator buttons, etc.)
