City of Columbia Official Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Blog

The Boone County History & Culture Center is open and now features the Treasures of Boone County mural, a testament to the County’s bicentennial this year.

The mural was designed by Columbia’s own Stacy “Wildy” Self, owner of WildysWorld! MuralMakers Studio. It features the communities that create Boone County, including Ashland, Centralia, Columbia, Hallsville, Harrisburg, Rocheport, Sturgeon and The Missouri River Community.

The mural captures different aspects of life in Boone County. Self reached out to the community for input on what should be featured and even had community paint nights year. Hundreds of people came together to help paint this historic mural. It is a beautiful symbol for all who live in and visit Boone County.

Everyone is invited to see this historic mural on display. The Boone County History & Culture Center is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12 – 4 p.m. The first hour of each day is reserved for those over 60 years of age or high-risk individuals.

Supporting your local businesses, restaurants and attractions while safely social distancing is still possible. Take a look at these ideas on how you can make a difference and keep our community strong.

FOOD DELIVERY & CURBSIDE PICKUP

Some restaurants are beginning to open for dine-in while still following the guidelines outlined in the Reopening Plan Order. More cleaning and sanitizing measures are in place for the health and safety employees and patrons. Curbside pickup, delivery and drive-thru options are still available at most restaurants. Check out our continuously updated list of restaurants that includes the details of the services they are offering.

PURCHASE GIFT CARDS

Purchasing gift cards to your favorite shop, restaurant or hotel is a simple way to support the community now while promising to come back in the future. Whether you are purchasing them for future use or gifting them to someone else, buying gift cards are a great way to support your favorite local businesses.

DIGITAL ATTRACTIONS EXPERIENCES

While many attractions remain closed at this time, there are still virtual experiences you can partake in. Art comes alive at Sager Braudis Gallery through its virtual galleries. The State Historical Society of Missouri features both digital collections and virtual events worth looking at. Be on the lookout for your favorite attraction’s virtual offerings.

SUPPORT LOCAL RETAILERS BY SHOPPING ONLINE

Retailers are actively using Facebook and other social media outlets to showcase their products and encourage patrons to shop online and even pickup their items with curbside pickup. There are so many shops and boutiques that offer unique items you can’t find anywhere else, and they would surely appreciate your business. Take a look at our continuously updated list of open shops and boutiques and see what services they are offering.

VISIT PARKS, TRAILS & NATURE AREAS

Columbia is home to numerous parks, trails and nature areas. Check out our Nature Checklist and start safely adventuring to new nature spots. Fresh air and exercise do great things for mental health, and with beautiful summer weather coming in, it should be enjoyed.

* Stay 6 feet away from other browsers in the shop.
* Only one person in the kids’ room at a time.

opens in a new windowColumbia Farmers Market

Heads up! 🚘 CFM Curbside Pickup Program time changes to 8:30am-10am, starting this Saturday, June 6! As we have slowly started allowing more people into the market, and the community starts to open, we have seen a large decrease in the number of curbside pickups. We, however, understand that many at-risk customers rely on the Curbside Pickup Program to purchase local food, and will continue to offer the program, for now, with limited hours. The longevity of the program is dependent on how many customers are using the program, as it’s a huge workload for CFM staff and vendors. Therefore, it will eventually be phased out if the total number of pickups continue to drop, which we believe it will. We’ll do our best to keep you posted about any further changes! Feel free to share your thoughts with us. 💚 #curbsidepickup #farmersmarketsareessential #werehereforyou #farmersmarket #columbiafarmersmarket

Regretfully, an employee at our South location on Peachtree Drive, who worked on Friday, July 3rd, has tested positive for Covid-19 (but is, and has been, completely asymptomatic). For now, our South location will be closed.

The state health department has advised us that our very strict use of facemasks, and adherence to thorough sanitation procedures, has greatly reduced the risk of transmission between us, and to our customers. We are not required to quarantine the entire staff for an extended period. Still, we will be testing staff, isolating those in direct contact with the employee involved, and performing a very thorough sanitation of the premises. Obviously, the safety of our customers and employees comes first.

We’ll continue working with our health department, and we’ll re-open when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we invite you to visit our Downtown and West Broadway locations, as those locations are not affected.

Thanks for your support and understanding during these incredibly challenging times.

Latest Information

UPDATED: July 10, 2020

The Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau’s (CVB) first priority is the safety and health of its visitors, its industry partners and its team. While the risk of contracting COVID-19 is low, our hospitality community is carefully following the guidelines of the U.S. Department of State and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local health department authorities. The city of Columbia and the County of Boone are no longer under a stay at home order. Information about what is permitted now that the order has been lifted can be found on Columbia’s Coronavirus Resource Page under Reopening and Recovery Documents.

The requirement to wear a face mask for all persons 10 years old and above will be effective on Friday, July 10 at 5:00 p.m. It will remain in effect for 90 days or until it is extended, rescinded, superseded or amended. You can review the entire ordinance  opens in a new windowhere.

At this time, there are multiple confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Boone County. The Columbia CVB highly recommends travelers follow protocols directed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds
  • If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
  • Cough into your elbow and sneeze into a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash
  • Consult with a doctor before traveling when sick
  • Stay up-to-date on vaccinations
  • Avoid contact with people who are already sick
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Be aware of the latest travel advisories from the CDC and U.S. State Department

Should you find yourself feeling ill while in Columbia and Boone County, the region is served by these major healthcare providers:

CVB Strategy

The Columbia CVB team is now back in the office full time. The Walton Building will be open to the public under modified hours beginning Monday, June 1. During this incredibly difficult time for the tourism industry, the CVB is focused on the following:

  • Working closely with our hoteliers and other industry partners to understand the impact the pandemic is having on their business and how the CVB can help.
  • Planning for marketing recovery and relaunch once travel begins to grow again. We want to be ready to capture visitors who will be looking to travel as quickly and effectively as possible.
  • Compiling helpful and positive information to distribute locally via the CVB’s website and social media.
  • Adjusting the CVB’s budget to ensure losses are accounted for and to plan for when travelers are planning trips again.
  • Staying in constant communication with sports events planners and our local sports stakeholders to stay up-to-date on cancellations, postponements, and possible reschedulings.

If you have additional questions concerning CVB operations, please don’t hesitate to contact the Columbia CVB. Contact Amy Schneider via email at Amy.Schneider@CoMo.gov

Who is counting down to the start of the True/False Film Fest?! I know I am!

12 movies later, I am officially ready to go and anxiously awaiting the start of the ultimate four-day movie marathon.

But, there is more to the True/False Film Fest than independent films.

From March March, art installations, music and merch, there is so much to see and do for everyone, even if you aren’t going to watch the films.

March March

March March has to be one of the most exciting parts of the True/False experience!

It’s a parade like no other, and it is going to be a sight to see. This parade kicks off the fest Friday evening in the District.

Everything begins at the Boone County Courthouse Square, and the march goes down 9th Street to the Sculpture Yard outside Missouri Theatre.

It’s a free event, and everyone is invited to either be part of the parade or be a spectator. I plan on being a spectator this first time so I can watch it happen firsthand, and I just can’t wait!

Art

True/False has incorporated Art  into the fest from the very beginning.

This year’s pieces are centered around the Foresight concept.

These installations are captivating, engaging and worth a trip downtown just to see what these artists ave created.

They are dispersed throughout the fest, and I am looking forward to seeing each artist’s individual take on Foresight.

Music & Concerts

So. Much. Music.

There will be so many musicians in town for the fest! Each of them have their own style, and you can even hear their tracks on the True/False website.

I have already gone through and know who I really want to see perform. Who are you most excited for?

Merch

The Fest Merch store is open! Located in the Sager Braudis Gallery, 1025 E Walnut Street, is it conveniently where the Box Office is located, too.

You must take a look and see all the True/False merchandise you can take home to commemorate exciting weekend you are bound to have. 

In late March there will be merch available for purchase online. Until then, the store is worth a visit. Happy shopping!
