As Cleveland, the nation and the world emerge from the COVID-19 global pandemic, we remember all those who have been affected by the virus. We are working alongside our local tourism and hospitality industries to preserve the Cleveland experience and will emerge stronger from this trying time.
To help provide peace of mind to both residents and visitors, Destination Cleveland has launched CLEAN COMMITTED, in partnership with Cuyahoga County, the City of Cleveland, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, Cleveland Clinic, The MetroHealth System and University Hospitals. Nearly 1,000 tourism and hospitality business owners have adopted a standard set of cleanliness practices. View a list of CLEAN COMMITTED businesses here.
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.

The order only requires those 10 years old or older to wear a mask. Additional exclusions include:
Refusing to wear a mask under these orders will be a misdemeanor.
Additionally, per the health order, individuals in outdoor settings should be in groups of no more than ten individuals, and groups should stay separated from other groups by at least six feet in all directions.

As of Jan. 26, 2021, any visitors or residents traveling to Cleveland from a foreign country via airplane must get tested for COVID-19 no more than 3 days before their flight departs and must present the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight. Air passengers will also be required to confirm that the information they present is true in the form of an attestation.
The Ohio Department of Health encourages travelers to carefully review Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance when considering travel. Even as more individuals are vaccinated across the United States and in Ohio and testing availability continues to improve, travelers should still practice appropriate public health measures to slow the spread of COVID-19, such as wearing masks, practicing physical distancing, and washing your hands. Updated CDC guidance related to domestic travel during the COVID-19 pandemic can be found here.
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 to follow all current health orders. Additional guidelines for residents and visitors can be found here.
Ohio’s Responsible RestartOhio 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. Most business categories, including restaurants, attractions, shops and more, have safely reopened and are ready to welcome residents and visitors alike.
Note: Please check with each business on opening status, hours and offerings.
