St. Louis officials are carefully monitoring the developments surrounding the health concerns related to COVID-19. Our hospitality community is strictly following the guidelines of the U.S. Department of State and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local health department authorities. As a precautionary measure, regional officials are placing a “stay at home” order on area residents until further notice. They are only allowed to leave home for essential services such as food, medicine, essential work and healthcare.
Please know that our first priority is the health, safety, and well-being of everyone visiting or attending an event that is held in our community. We are continually engaging with health experts and hospitality industry leaders to provide the very latest information to our partners throughout the region. At our airports, hotels, restaurants, event venues, and attractions, our hospitality partners are taking necessary steps to ensure the safety of their guests. In some cases, that includes temporarily closing at this time. If you have a question about a specific attraction, please visit their website for additional information.”

- Wash hands often with soap and water. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
