As Frederick County moves forward with its reopening process, Visit Frederick will update this page with the latest travel and tourism information.
Many of Frederick's businesses have reopened, but they may still act and look a little different. Face masks are required in public spaces and in outdoor public areas where physical distancing is not possible. Many businesses are operating at a reduced capacity and have increased their cleaning procedures. You may be asked to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before entering some establishments.
At this time, it is strongly recommended that you call attractions, restaurants, lodging and other properties before your visit. Even if it is a place you visit each year, many businesses have new hours or may require an appointment. Some parks may even reach capacity early in the day, it's a good idea to call or check their social media accounts for closures the day of your visit.
