COVID-19 Information and Resources

The health and safety of our Downtown Arlington residents, visitors, and businesses is our top priority. We strongly recommend visiting City of Arlington CoronaVirus 2019's resources page for the latest information on COVID-19 measures and directives. Please continue to monitor this page for additional resources, news and other updates re: COVID-19 as they are available.


Downtown Measures

We are adapting our processes and programs to best suit the rapidly evolving situation. We are following all guidelines from public health officials.

  • All downtown Arlington events for March and April are currently cancelled. Additionally, until the events ban is lifted, we are temporarily removing our events calendar and event listings from our website and newsletter. 

  • The Downtown Arlington office is currently closed. All staff are continuing work from their homes, and are available through email and phone. 

  • We have launched Downtown Delivers, a campaign to help support downtown restaurants during this time. 

  • We are continuously sharing resources, downtown news, and more on our social media pages and on our website

 

Downtown Delivers

Downtown Delivers is an online platform for Downtown Arlington bar and restaurant partners to quickly communicate their current operating models. Through this platform, customers can then immediately find information and make informed purchasing decisions in support of their favorite Downtown dining destinations. In addition to providing a business overview, directions and contact information, Downtown Delivers identifies those dining partners that are currently offering to-go ordering, curbside pick-up and/or delivery options.

Downtown businesses can easily join the movement by updating their website listing using our members portal. If you need assistance with access, please email the BID Services and Communications Manager, katie@downtownarlington.org
