COVID-19: Restoring Richmond
The City of Richmond is beginning to restore programs and services impacted by COVID-19. Through a carefully planned and multi-step approach, we're restoring many of the amenities and services that were closed. We will do so in a manner that will maintain and protect public safety.

Restoring Richmond Plan
The City Services Restoration Plan consists of five steps, which exist along a service restoration continuum of lower risk, lower impact on the left to higher risk, higher impact on the right. The timing and order of each step, and the restoration of individual programs and services within each step, is subject to change as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. This plan assumes that there is no setback in the collective societal progress to flatten the curve of infections.
We are currently in Step One which is characterized by the restoration of public access to most outdoor park amenities and indoor tennis with limits on group size.
