In the planning and preparation to re-open the beaches of Virginia Beach, the City of Virginia Beach has worked tirelessly to develop a series of protocols with the safety, security, and well-being of our community, our visitors, and our restaurant and hospitality workers in mind.
Through this work, we believe we’ve defined the Gold Standard for beach safety and cleanliness, and our Hotel and Restaurant Associations followed suit with their own new protocols with the same important goals.
Together, we’ve all made a pledge to Summer Smarter in 2020 – and adhere to these protocols without compromise. It is Virginia Beach’s way to shine a light on our collective commitment to ensuring a safe, fun, and relaxing summer for all.
We’re Open, and we’re pledging to Summer Smarter. Businesses that have also pledged to Summer Smarter by following the guidelines set forth by the City of Virginia Beach will be marked by our We’re Open / Summer Smarter window signs. It is a symbol of their pledge – their commitment – to providing our community and visitors a safe summer outing in 2020.
Come re-discover the beaches of Virginia Beach. You deserve it. We’re waiting for you.
Virginia Beach restaurants and accommodations are working hard to ensure that your stay with us is fun, healthy, and safe for you and your family. Watch here to see the steps many are taking to ensure a clean environment.
