Latest Updates and Travel Information

We are excited to safely welcome you back to Asheville! Whether you are visiting us soon or planning ahead, it is our upmost priority to keep our visitors and community safe. Please be aware of the following guidelines and travel precautions currently in place to make your next trip to Asheville healthy and safe. 

Travel Responsibly

As you prepare for your trip, please be aware of the current restrictions in place to help keep you and others safe:

  • Per Governor's orders, face coverings are no longer required in public (except for transportation and in other settings*); however, individual businesses may require patrons to continue to wear masks indoors. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding! 

  • Indoor dining has been restricted to 75% capacity. Many restaurants offer takeout, curbside, delivery and outdoor dining options for guests as alternative options. Reservations are strongly encouraged as space is limited. Thank you for your patience!

  • Residents and guests should continue to adhere to government orders and health guidelines. Please maintain social distance from others and wash your hands frequently.  

Thank you for helping protect yourself and others while visiting Asheville!

*Face coverings are required indoors for public transportation, hospitals and other healthcare settings, long-term care settings, childcare settings, schools, camps, correctional facilities and homeless shelters.

Stay Safe Pledge

Many Asheville-area businesses, residents and guests are making a commitment to each other: Our Stay Safe Pledge. Asheville deeply cares about every neighbor and guest, and as you are welcomed into shops, restaurants, attractions and natural spaces, it is with sincere consideration for each other's well-being. We invite you to join us in Asheville's Stay Safe Pledge and take the precautions necessary for all of us to stay safe and enjoy this wonderful city together. Learn More Here >>

Practice Patience

As many Asheville-area businesses and restaurants fully reopen, we ask for your patience and understanding. Many independent and locally-owned restaurants are working hard to hire more staff, which may cause slightly longer delays. Savor the moment and enjoy your food as you wait! Reservations are strongly encouraged at many restaurants; please be sure to call ahead to receive the most up-to-date information. We are so glad you are here, and we appreciate your patience as we get back to business! See Things to Do Asheville >>
