The Salvation Army Kroc Center closes due to coronavirus

The Salvation Army Kroc Center Mississippi Gulf Coast elected to close, as COVID-19 cases in South Mississippi increase.

“In light of the national developments and rapidly changing conditions regarding the spread of COVID-19 (commonly referred to as coronavirus), the Kroc Center of Mississippi Gulf Coast has temporarily suspended all public programming and operations effective immediately. As risks have increased regarding community spread of COVID-19 across the coast, we have considered all options and have ultimately decided to follow CDC guidelines to limit public exposures. As such, all activity, including Taste of South MS, will be suspended in our building effective Monday, March 16. 

As this matter evolves, we will offer facility updates on when we plan to reopen. Our local and national Kroc Center teams are working within parameters set forth by the CDC and the guidance of local government to determine when we can safely return to normal operations. For those that are enrolled in programs, we will communicate plans for rescheduling as that information becomes available. Memberships will extend at the end of term for the amount of days the facility is closed.

Temporarily closing our doors is a difficult decision, as we balance being available to the community with being proactive in the interest of public health. We are grateful to have your understanding and patience during this time.

We truly appreciate your support and commitment to helping us create a welcoming space for Worship, Arts, Education, and Recreation. We know that staying fit and active is our best way to build a strong immune system and to stay healthy. Even though you can’t make it in to join us in person, here is a FREE online option of Les Mills fitness classes to help keep you active and working out at home. This platform offers 95 free workouts across 8 categories and it will remain available as long as the disruption from Coronavirus continues. Additionally, we plan to post on our social media platforms, providing tips to stay active and engaged over the coming days.”
