COVID-19 continues to be a serious concern for Elkhart County. Whether you live, work or are visiting, your health and safety are very important to us.  

Please be patient 

All of us want you to enjoy your visit, but COVID-19 is causing major economic effects as well. Products and services might not always be available from our small businesses, and providing exceptional customer service can be a challenge when staffing is stretched. We ask you to be kind and patient as we work hard to serve you and deliver memorable experiences. 

While there is no countywide requirements for masks or social distancing in Elkhart County, some businesses and attractions may require it for their location. We ask you to be respectful of the individual decisions these entrepreneurs are making. 

Public health officials advise that unvaccinated people should wear masks in public settings, especially when indoors or when social distancing cannot be maintained. See the Elkhart County Health Department or the Indiana State Department of Health's coronavirus page for additional health and safety guidance and information. 

Closures & Cancellation 

We urge you to call an attraction, restaurant and shop to double-check current hours and operating practices before you visit.  

Our many fine restaurants have adapted their practices and are eager to welcome guests for dine-in, take-out or delivery. Here are the restaurants working responsibly to serve you.
