AMS adding hand washing stations, distributing hand sanitizer during NASCAR weekend
Atlanta Motor Speedway is equipped to help fans race to good hygiene during the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.
The Speedway is installing additional hand-washing stations in key places throughout the facility and will be distributing hand sanitizer to guests as they arrive for the weekend's slate of activities. High-traffic areas where things like hand-rails are often touched will also receive deep cleaning throughout the weekend.

AMS is closely monitoring facts and recommendations from public health officials regarding COVID-19. The CDC's current risk assessment says for the majority of people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low, and that there is not widespread circulation in most communities in the United States.
To prevent the spread of cold, flu or COVID-19, experts are encouraging prevention, not panic, and asking people to practice good hygiene: frequent hand-washing, using hand sanitizer and covering sneezes and coughs.
Atlanta Motor Speedway is encouraging all attendees to follow these recommendations as they enjoy the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 weekend.
