City of Columbia Official Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Blog

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.

Booches Starting Monday, Booche’s will be open to limited seating for dine-in. Here are the rules we have to play by. I’m not one for saying no, you can’t do this or no, you can’t do that. We’re all adults and as long as you respect Booche’s and treat my staff well, anything goes. But these times, they are a-changing (hopefully, temporarily) and we need to make adjustments. The city has granted us to parking spaces right out front of Booche’s for pickup and carryout only. If you are not doing pickup or carryout from Booche’s, don’t park there. On the same note, don’t park in someone else’s pickup or carryout spaces. The city has provided plenty of FREE parking downtown, for the time being, to accommodate all. We will be able to seat 22 people inside Booche’s with tables approximately separated. There will be no seating at the bar. If we are at capacity, don’t push your luck. I have the best staff a small business owner could possibly want. They will be doing their best to make sure your dining experience is the best and safest it can possibly be. Sadly to say, there will be no billiards offered at this time. With the exception of an acoustic stringed instrument played by a well-schooled musician, no sound is more pleasing to my ears than the sound of pool balls touching each other. I hope I didn’t forget anything. If you are not feeling well, don’t come in. If you don’t like these rules, don’t come in. One last thing, Booche’s is the oldest business in Columbia. It has been ongoing since 1884. I am not planning on being its last owner. Let’s work together to keep this great establishment moving forward.❤️

Now open! Due to health department requirements, eating at HuHot is going to look and feel quite different. Your server will hand you a form to fill out and our staff of dedicated bowl builders will build your bowl and hand it off to the cooks. Your cooked meal will then be delivered back to your table by your server. Because HuHot will remain all-you-can-eat, leftover grill meals will still not be allowed to be take home. If you wish to do a carryout meal, we will be happy to accommodate you. Of course, you are welcome to take home leftover appetizers and desserts. We are currently limited by the health department to 50% of our dining room capacity. We cannot exceed that number and may restrict it below that. This is completely new to us and is certain to negatively impact our efficiency. We will only seat as many tables as we can provide an acceptable level of service to. We will now be accepting call ahead seating. If there is a wait list, we will put you on the wait list when we receive your call. Waiting for tables is not allowed inside the building. If we are on a wait, we will text you when your table is available. Please be patient, this is all new for us and we are doing the best we can under the circumstances.

Latest Information

UPDATED: May 29, 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.

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:

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has activated a statewide public hotline for citizens or providers needing guidance regarding COVID-19. The hotline is open and can be reached at 877.435.8411. The hotline is being operated by medical professionals and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to travel to Columbia and/or Missouri?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has consistently advised the public to practice everyday preventative measures to help stop the spread of germs, as typical in the current flu and respiratory disease season. There are no travel restrictions or advisories in the domestic U.S., which includes Columbia, Boone County and the state of Missouri. If you are concerned about travel within the United States, please check updated CDC recommendations here.

Are there any closures of note for visitors to Columbia, such as attractions, hotels, restaurants or meeting venues?

The University of Missouri announced on March 11 that it is modifying operations and classes, and the most current information on COVID-19 at Mizzou can be found here. Operations are also altered at Columbia College and Stephens College. The May commencement ceremonies for each institution have also been canceled or postponed. The Columbia Mall is operating under reduced hours. As is true in every other city, residents and visitors alike are asked to observe public health recommendations. Many other local businesses are operating are now using curbside pickup and/or delivery. The CVB has created an online listing that is being updated constantly. 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.

What is the impact on the tourism industry in Columbia and Boone County?

The decision to cancel meetings and events is creating and will continue to result in a significant impact on the local economy and to the workers whose jobs and livelihoods are affected by reductions in these events. Over 11,000 people in Boone County directly or indirectly depend on tourism for their job.

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!

Did you see all the films that are going to be showing at the True/False Film Fest? If you haven’t, check them out!

The films are all so unique and interesting, how can I choose which to see? Why are they all so great?!

To figure out what films make the cut and when I can see them, I have created a game plan that could actually work.

Here we go!

Step 1: Pick your favorite films

I was on the True/False website at 6:01 p.m. om February 12, just one minute after the films would for sure be listed.

Whoa, was I ever impressed with all the film descriptions I was reading! So impressed that after I read through them once, I immediately read through them again making internal notes on which ones I was the most interested in seeing.

This process was more helpful than I knew at the time. I automatically found 10 films I wanted to see. After a second look though, the number jumped to 14.

That’s nothing though.

When she first looked, my friend Megan had 12 films she knew she wanted to see. When she looked at them all again, she added four more to the list. The more you look at the film list, the more likely you are to add to your watch list!

It has to be a True/False trick. But it worked! Now on to the next step.

Step 2: Look at the schedule

Time to take in when and where all my film favorites are playing!

When I first looked at the schedule, I felt overwhelmed. There is a lot of information to take in, and there is just a lot going on.

Let’s walk through it.

There is an individual schedule for each day of the fest. The film start and end times are listed for each of the 11 venues where you watch the films.

There is also a column for Other Music and Events. This shockingly details other times you can listen to music and attend various events throughout the fest. I am definitely going to take a look at these two columns before and during the fest; I want to go to March March and experience other fun things!

I feel like I’ve grasped the schedule and understand it, so let’s move on to Step 3, where it all comes together.

Step 3: Plan the weekend

I’m looking at this schedule right now with my 14 favorite films ready to go, and I just hope this all works out.

I really want it to be possible to see all the films I’m interested in (and maybe two or three more).

We have to consider the film length, where the film is being shown, how far away my next film venue is, ALL of the things.

Luckily, the True/False team thought of all of that.

The schedule includes all of the films, where they are playing and when exact moment they start and end. But wait, there’s more!

At the bottom of the Thursday Schedule, there is a chart showing how far of a walk it is between venues. ALL the venues. This is going to be crucial as I plan out which films I want to see, where I can see them and how long of a walk I have to the next one.

They really did think of everything!

I am going to buckle down and make my plan tonight so I am ready to go when the time comes to login to the True/False system and make my reservations. Good luck to all of us, and may we all reserve the films and times we hope for!
