Planning a Trip to Durham?

We know everyone has COVID-19 considerations in mind while traveling. Don't worry, we've compiled what we think visitors need to know before arriving. You can find the scoop here.

Let's Get Back on the Bull

We also wanted to make sure you were aware of the City of Durham and Durham County's health and safety campaign, "Let's Get Back on the Bull." Check out the website, BackontheBull.com, to find out which businesses and organizations have completed a checklist, plus links that answer FAQs about the latest local ordinances, Durham County Department of Public Health's data dashboard, and more. When searching participating businesses, you can click on each establishment to find a full, transparent list of safety measures the owners are committed to taking to reduce the risk for staff and guests. Here's our list, so you are informed. If you're most interested in supporting minority-owned businesses, there are search filters for that, too. Once you arrive in Durham, look for the "Back on the Bull" signage in storefront windows outlining safety measures in place, too.
