Visit the Richmond region Safely

We’re serious about keeping everyone safe

Here in the Richmond region, we’re diligent about taking on COVID-19, with strict safety standards and special practices to protect our visitors and our residents. In fact, we’re the capital of the first state to adopt COVID worker safety rules. We’re also committed to keeping you informed about what to expect when you visit RVA. So read on to see what we’re doing throughout the region. And join us in our effort to reopen with care.

While You're Here

Right now, the Richmond region is in Phase 3 of Virginia’s COVID-19 reopening plan. Please watch for these special standards that are being enforced throughout the Richmond region:

  • Masks are mandatory in indoor public places for both workers and guests.

  • Restaurants are open, but they’re all mandated to enforce physical distancing.

  • Movie theaters, bowling alleys and other indoor entertainment venues are open at 50% capacity, with physical distancing.

  • Public gatherings are limited to 250 people, so sorry, no major concerts right now.

  • People with a fever or symptoms of COVID aren’t allowed in places of business.  If you’re not well, please -- go home and rest.

Remember, our amazing outdoor experiences are a healthy way to have fun. So come, and enjoy rafting and kayaking on the James River, biking on the Capital Trail, hiking our many urban and rural trails and taking in the Virginia countryside. Our outdoors are always open for you.
