COVID-19 Downtown Community Information

 In News

The global COVID-19 pandemic is unsettling, and our thoughts are with those who are affected by the virus and the uncertainty surrounding it.

In Hampden County and the metropolitan Springfield area cases of the virus continue to be confirmed. No advisories or restrictions for travel to Springfield or Hampden County have been issued at this time.

The safety of our visitors, community, volunteers and staff is the Springfield Business Improvement’s highest priority, and we are confident that area businesses and attractions that remain open are deploying the appropriate sanitation protocol. We encourage everyone to follow the health and safety precautions issued by the CDC to limit the spread of communicable illnesses and to make informed decisions as they go about their daily routine.

Right now, due to orders issued by the State of Massachusetts and a focus on health and safety in our community, a limited number of Springfield attractions and businesses remain open. As of Tuesday on March 17, only carry-out and delivery is available from the restaurants that remain open.

The Springfield Regional Visitors Center staff is closed until further notice. If you have any questions or concerns please email

With the situation evolving rapidly, we encourage visitors to consult the national and local health resources listed below as they prepare for travel, including the CDC’s guide to travel in the U.S.



The State of Massachusetts – to help control the spread of the virus – has instituted restrictions on large gatherings. Many popular attractions and events including the Springfield Museums, Basketball Hall of Fame, MGM Springfield, and much more are closed until further notice.

We encourage residents and visitors to consult the venue, event or its organizer’s website/social handles for the most up-to-date information and additional details.
