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, 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.
The City of Cleveland is under a Stay-at-Home Advisory, which directs all residents to stay at home to the greatest extent possible.
Those who have tested positive for COVID-19 and have not recovered, those who are presumptively diagnosed with COVID-19 and those who are exhibiting the symptoms identified in the screening guidance available from the CDC and the Ohio Department of Health, remain prohibited from entering the state of Ohio unless they are doing so under medical orders for purposes of medical care, are being transported by emergency medical services, are driving or being driven directly to a medical provider for the purposes of initial care or are a permanent resident of Ohio.
As of 6 pm on July 23, 2020, the State of Ohio requires facial coverings in public for those living, working and traveling in the state when:
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.
On July 23, the State of Ohio issued a statewide travel advisory for all individuals coming into Ohio from states reporting positive COVID-19 testing rates of 15 percent or higher.
Those traveling from any of the states listed here should self-quarantine for 14 days at home or in a hotel. The self-quarantine recommendation applies to those who live in Ohio and to people who are traveling into Ohio from any of these states.
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.
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.
