Gov. Henry McMaster’s latest executive order, along with a possible clearance by the state Department of Commerce, could clear the way for this year’s Southern 500 weekend at Darlington Raceway to host fans.
McMaster’s current order instructs venues that, like sports stadiums, they can host either 250 people or 50% of their posted occupancy – whichever is smaller, and the fans must wear masks/face coverings. But those venues, like sports stadiums, can host even more fans if the Department of Commerce approves their request to host more fans if they show how social distancing can still take place with more people (masks still required).
