The global COVID-19 pandemic is unsettling, and our thoughts are with those who are affected by the virus and the uncertainty surrounding it. We appreciate the work of our fellow Clevelanders who continue to provide medical care, essential government functions and service at the businesses that remain open.
While the pandemic continues to evolve, communities across the country are experiencing unprecedented closures and economic loss, especially in the tourism and hospitality industries. We stand in support of both our global and local tourism and hospitality communities and know that by banding together we will emerge from this situation stronger than ever.
And when you, the traveling public, are ready to explore again, we’ll welcome you back to Cleveland. In the meantime, we hope you find inspiration on our website…and the CLE Concierge team is also ready to help you plan your trip.
We anxiously await a “return to normal.”
The State of Ohio, to help control the spread of the virus, has instituted restrictions on large gatherings of 50 or more people. (Note: Restriction extended from gatherings of 100 to gatherings of 50 or more on 3/16/2020). Several major attractions have closed through the end of March or into early April. Below is a partial list of other closures:
Please refer to our event calendar for status of ongoing and special events, which we are updating frequently. As this list is not comprehensive of all events taking place in the Cleveland area, we also encourage visitors to consult the event organizer’s website/social handles for the most up-to-date information and additional details.
Travelers are welcome should they decide that a visit to Cleveland is desired and in their best interests. It is likely that visitors will experience disruption to their plans due to closures or event cancellation/postponement.
As the safety of our visitors, residents, volunteers and staff is a top priority, the Cleveland Visitors Center is temporarily closed to help limit the spread of COVID-19. The CLE Concierge team remains available to answer phone calls and e-mails Monday through Saturday 9am-6pm. Please contact us by phone (216-875-6680), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or utilize our live chat.
With the situation evolving rapidly, we encourage visitors to consult the national and local health resources listed below as they prepare for travel, including the CDC’s guide to travel in the U.S.
With the temporary closure of the Cleveland Visitors Center, redemption of the Cleveland Brewery Passport is on hold until further notice. While on-site consumption at breweries is prohibited by state order, locals and visitors who patronize the carryout/delivery service of Cleveland Brewery Passport participants may be able to obtain stamps (at each brewery’s discretion).
We will let everyone know when the Cleveland Visitors Center re-opens, so that locals and visitors may once again redeem their Passports.
