Coronavirus Information and Resources for Travelers

The safety of our visitors is our highest priority and the team at Memphis Tourism encourages all travelers to follow guidance issued by public health officials. We are continually monitoring the rapidly changing situation regarding COVID-19 (also commonly known as the “Coronavirus”). Below are resources that will give Memphis visitors the latest information on the status of our tourism and hospitality community. Some attractions have made the difficult decision to close while others remain open with reduced capacity to space out guests and prevent visitors from clustering in large groups along with deploying the appropriate sanitation protocol. Travelers are welcome should they decide to visit Memphis today, tomorrow or in the future. Visitors can also engage with our team on various social platforms using the @MemphisTravel handle.
