A Message from Visit Quad Cities re: COVID-19

As the Quad Cities regional destination confronts the impacts of the COVID-19 virus on the hospitality industry and visitor economy, Visit Quad Cities will continue to monitor information locally, nationally, and globally that is pertinent to tourism and travel.

The public safety of our visitors and Quad Citizens is the leading priority. We will continue to follow the expertise and leadership from the region’s public health departments. In addition, Visit Quad Cities is engaged with the “Quad Cities COVID-19 Coalition” which includes area health, business, government, and emergency management officials.

We strongly encourage visitors and residents to rely on expertise and guidance from the public health officials. You can visit togetherqc.com

At this time, Visit Quad Cities will not speculate on the regional economic impacts of the COVID-19 health situation on the visitor economy. We are in communication with our industry partners concerning events and meetings and will continue to share pertinent information with them from our state and local public healthcare officials.

We have heard from Quad Cities area hotels, restaurants, attractions, and venues that have and continue to take increased sanitation protocols. There will be events in the QC that will either be postponed or cancelled, and we encourage you to check visitquadcities.com and other websites, and their communication platforms before you go.
