Open for Business: COVID-19 Updates and Resources

Open for Business

Last updated: Friday, July 10, 2020

We look forward to welcoming you to Dallas this summer! Dallas businesses have been allowed to resume or expand operations with restrictions as outlined in the governor's guidelines.

Currently, shops are allowed to operate at 75 percent capacity, while restaurants can operate at 50 percent capacity. Bars, craft breweries and wineries are currently closed. Zoos, aquariums, bowling alleys, museums, libraries and skating rinks are allowed to operate at 50 percent capacity. Outdoor gatherings of more than 100 people are currently prohibited, unless approved by local officials.

On Friday, June 19, 2020, the Dallas County Commissioners Court issued an order requiring businesses to refuse entry to patrons who are not wearing masks, and restaurants are included in that order.

In general, many Dallas hotels, shops, attractions, and restaurants have reopened. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and verify hours and information with individual businesses. We encourage guests to practice all health and social distancing guidelines issued by the CDC, as well as state and local governments, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
