For the past five months, healthcare workers have been on the frontlines handling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to show their gratitude, the South Carolina Aquarium is hosting Healthcare Heroes Month.
Thanks to the support of BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, all employees from Roper St. Francis, Trident Medical Center, East Cooper Medical Center, and the Medical University of South Carolina will receive free admission to the Aquarium from August 17th through September 13th.
To redeem, healthcare workers can call the South Carolina Aquarium Customer Service Center at (843) 577-FISH (3474) starting August 17th to reserve a dated and timed ticket. Be sure to mention that you are a Healthcare Hero during the call. Tickets must be reserved in advance. Healthcare workers must provide proof of employment (i.e. ID badge) at the admission gate for entry. This offer is exclusive to healthcare workers only, and does not apply to friends and family.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, the Aquarium says they have mandated that facial coverings be worn at all times. Additionally, all visitors are required to purchase tickets online, in advance, to reserve the date and time of their visit due to capacity limitations.
