What to Expect When Visiting Baltimore
We can’t wait to welcome you back to Baltimore, but your health and safety is our top priority. As the city begins to reopen, businesses, locals and visitors alike are strongly advised to adhere to best practices for health and public safety, including appropriate social distancing, regular hand-washing and mask-wearing in all indoor and outdoor spaces where social distancing is not possible.
Public health advisories may change at any moment. We ask that you stay up-to-date with Baltimore City public health orders prior to and during your visit.
And please check the websites of individual hotels, restaurants, museums and attractions for the latest hours of operation, reservation requirements and safety protocols before you visit.
