COVID-19 Impacts: What to expect.

We are extremely excited for you to visit Midland when you feel comfortable. Whether it’s to experience some of Midland's local restaurants, museums or enjoy some social distancing-friendly endeavors, we welcome you here for an outing.


Update: as of June 26th at noon, per Governor’s Order bars are closed until further notice. As the COVID-19 situation continues to change, stay tuned to local official City and County websites for updates. Please check website and social media pages for bar establishments for other opportunities to support local through merchandise sales, to-go orders, and deliveries.  Also, per the Governor’s Order, restaurants are only seating at 50% capacity.

Update: Governor Greg Abbott has issued Executive Order 29 requiring all Texans to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth in public spaces, with few exceptions, in counties with 20 or more positive COVID-19 cases. Open Texas checklists are being updated consistent with this order. The Governor also issued a proclamation giving mayors and county judges the ability to impose restrictions on some outdoor gatherings of over 10.
