The global COVID-19 pandemic is unsettling, and we continue to keep those who are affected by the virus in our thoughts. Additionally, we stand in support of our local tourism and hospitality industries who are experiencing unprecedented economic loss. By banding together, we will emerge from this situation stronger than ever.
To help provide peace of mind to both residents and visitors as the region’s businesses safely re-open, Destination Cleveland has launched CLEAN COMMITTED. In partnership Cuyahoga County, the City of Cleveland and the region’s healthcare experts at the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, Cleveland Clinic, The MetroHealth System and University Hospitals, we are asking tourism and hospitality business owners to be CLEAN COMMITTED by adopting a standard set of cleanliness practices. View a list of CLEAN COMMITTED businesses here.
And when you, the traveling public, are ready to explore we hope you find inspiration on our website and consult our trip planning tools and the CLE Concierge team to help you prepare for your visit.
On July 2, the State of Ohio introduced a Public Health Advisory Alert System, a four-level, color-coded system that provides guidance as to the severity of the COVID-19 spread in each county. The levels are determined by seven data indicators.
Cuyahoga County is presently at Level 3, representing very high exposure and spread. It is recommended that activities are limited as much as possible and all current health orders are followed. Additional guidelines for residents and visitors can be found here.
As of July 8, 2020, at 6 p.m., a public health order from the State of Ohio requires facial coverings in counties identified as Level 3 of the Public Health Advisory Alert System. Those living, working and traveling in Cuyahoga County are required to wear facial coverings in any indoor location when not at their residence, when outdoors and not able to consistently maintain six feet physical distancing and while waiting for or riding public transportation or ride-sharing vehicles.
The order to wear facial coverings does not apply to those under the age of 10, nor does it apply to those who meet existing exclusions for facial coverings due to medical or safety issues. Refusing to wear a mask under these orders will be a misdemeanor.
On May 1, Ohio’s Responsible RestartOhio program, a gradual reopening process for businesses, started. The program includes operating requirements and protocols to help limit the spread of the coronavirus and enhance the health and safety of employees, patrons and visitors. At a minimum, protocols include required face coverings for all employees, limited capacity, social distancing and enhanced and frequent cleaning and sanitation. Businesses following these protocols may reopen with the following timing:
Note: Please check with each business on opening status, hours and offerings.
Auditoriums, stadiums, arenas, performance theaters and indoor concert and music halls remain closed. Parades, fairs, festivals and carnivals are not permitted, except for county fairs approved by local public health departments.
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.
Because the safety of our visitors, residents, volunteers and staff is a top priority, the Cleveland Visitors Center is temporarily closed. 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. Locals and visitors who patronize the carryout/delivery service of Cleveland Brewery Passport may be able to obtain stamps. As participating breweries reopen on or after May 15, stamps may also be available for on-site purchases. Stamping is at the Brewery’s discretion due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will let everyone know when the Cleveland Visitors Center re-opens, so that locals and visitors may once again redeem their Passports.
