With the Rough Rider Center (RRC) holding numerous events in celebration of fall through the end of October and early November, it may have some people wondering if it’s a good call to attend such festivities with sanitation measures being at such a high stake right now due to COVID-19 precautions. Luckily, the RRC staff has done all the hard work of figuring out safe accommodations, so you don’t have to.
“We aren’t using the facility as a whole but we’re using specific areas,” says Kylee Roff, Rough Rider Center business development manager.
As McKenzie County recently went into the high-risk category for COVID-19, Roff says the facility is currently operating at a 25 percent capacity.
“With us being such a big facility, we take a look at the numbers in the different areas. Because if you think of the capacity of the whole facility, 25 percent is quite a bit,” Roff says.
