What’s open?

Everything is open, 100%! There are no longer any mandated restrictions on capacity or hours of operation. There are some businesses that might choose to continue to have some limits that make sense for that business, its employees and their families. Please look for signage as you enter each businesses.

The City of Durango has provided free curbside pick-up parking spaces for to-go orders from restaurants, or to pick up a pre-ordered item from a business. Please be aware that these spots are only for pick up and not for regular daytime parking. Parking is limited to 10 minutes in these spaces, and they are clearly marked on the parking meters.

Many restaurants Downtown have added a Bump Out, which is an outdoor patio on the curb in front of the business. Many others have existing patios. To see a list of all Downtown and North Main District restaurants with outdoor dining options, click HERE.


Mask Wearing

If you are fully vaccinated, you no longer have to wear a mask to enter indoor public spaces. Fully vaccinated means you are two weeks past your last dose of your COVID-19 vaccine. If you are not yet fully vaccinated, you are strongly encouraged to continue to wear a mask when entering indoor public spaces. PLEASE CARRY YOUR MASK WITH YOU even if you are fully vaccinated as some businesses will still require you to wear your mask. Please respect their choice. Look for signs at the entrance that tell you what a business expects. Most businesses are trusting that you are being honest about your vaccination status, and thus will not ask you anything about it when you enter.
