UPDATED CONTINUALLY. Last update: 7/15/20

In an effort to “flatten the curve” of COVID-19 cases, the Commonwealth of Virginia, not unlike states across the country, implemented measures including business and other closures, to encourage citizens to shelter at home. The Town of Colonial Beach not only adhered to those guidelines, but, in some cases, enacted their own to keep residents safe.

At this time, some businesses are scaling back operations and Events are being postponed or canceled. Contact individual businesses to confirm.

Food & Beverage Establishments
Nearly all CBVA eating and drinking establishments offer carry-out and/or delivery, some are open for eat-in with limited capacity and COVID-19 safety guidelines in place.
