Health and Safety Precautions

The Waco Convention Center’s top priority is the safety of its guests, employees, and all who pass through our doors.

Although we are currently closed, we wanted to let you know the measures we are taking to respond to the issue of COVID-19.

Currently we adhere to the CDC guidelines as well as to guidance from the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District, and Gov. Abbott’s “Plan to Open Texas.” Some of the key points are as follows:

  • Our staff wears face coverings at all times when working among the public
  • Our staff sanitizes high-touch zones three times daily. These areas include handrails, door handles (both interior and exterior), bathroom surfaces, and escalator/elevator
  • Hand sanitizing stations are located at key points in the building
  • We practice social distancing
  • Staff temperatures are checked every day
  • Plexiglass shields are present in the reception office to protect staff and guests/attendees

Health and Safety Precautions for Meeting and Event Planners

When the WCC is allowed to host events again, we are prepared to work individually with our meeting and event planners to develop plans and procedures specific to each event. Key guidelines are as follows:

  • Social distancing must be adhered to while in the facility
  • Meeting and event planners must observe health and safety guidelines at all times
  • Sanitizing stations will be available
  • Temperature testing stations will be available
  • The event organizer will decide whether to require face coverings of attendees, and if so, he/she would supply these
