COVID19 Business Updates


The Eastern Shore of Virginia Tourism Commission is dedicated to all of our people. Our community, volunteers, staff, local businesses, and visitors alike are our number one priority always and especially in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. We are monitoring COVID-19 updates along with the whole world as we wait to see what the next steps will be as we maintain our lives during this uncertain time.

Remember, everyone can help to prevent the spread of Coronavirus with a few simple practices: stay home when you’re sick, wash your hands, and practice social distancing to protect yourself and your loved ones. We recommend staying up to date with your local government, state government, and national government as developments are announced.

If you had a trip scheduled during this time, please consider rescheduling instead of canceling. At the end of this, we will still be here, waiting to share the Shore’s nature, food, events, drinks, shops, art, and all with you.
