COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Concerns about the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak are valid due to potential disruptions in work and travel. However, we wanted to provide you with this update to inform you of what measures are taking to monitor the situation.

The Hamilton County Health Department is working closely with local cities and towns, hospitals, long-term care facilities and health care providers to ensure they are ready should the virus emerge here.

Hamilton County Tourism is working with Hamilton County government officials and its communications team and departments to message appropriately to our local hospitality industry any updates as they occur.

Because HCT is keeping a record of business disruptions, as a tourism industry representative, we would appreciate your sharing with Brenda Myers, President/CEO, any of the following information:

  • If there is a business disruption as a result of the virus, even if the virus has not been discovered locally (e.g. cancellations due to travel bans)
  • If you are putting into place any procedures or protocol against the virus that we can note for the record
