Downtown Reno Businesses Re-Opening Toolkit
The top priority for the Downtown Reno Partnership is the health and wellness of downtown employees, residents and visitors. We will continue to work with City of Reno and Washoe County partners to get you accurate information as soon as it is available. Below are important links to information as well as resources for employers and employees experiencing economic hardship as a result of the COVID-19 impact.
Signage, menus and reopening guides
The Downtown Reno Partnership and Riverwalk District have joined forces to create a digital storefront for all of your COVID-19 reopening printing needs.
We now have customizable window decals, floor decals, counter decals, bathroom signs, menus, open signs and information for everyone to make consistent reopening experience for customers.
- We added the Washoe County official “COVID Safe” sign as a static cling and a two-sided opaque sticker/sign for windows.
- We added a banner “Open for Business” with an area for customer logo. The banner has four grommets – one in each corner.
It is important to log in and create an account per user. This site is secure and only the user and the printing facility can see the order and content. When variable data is added (personalization, logos, etc.) you will be prompted to view a PDF proof. The site will not move forward on those items without a proof approval. The site can store info to review later or save things for later. It is a typical site with credit card check out. Please make sure to include the shipping address and phone number – no P.O. boxes for shipment of items.
Phase 2 update
Phase 2 reopening in Nevada starts June 1, with plans for casinos to reopen with limitations on June 4. Washoe County and the State agree that the following businesses can reopen with restrictions consistent with Phase 1 (50% capacity or less, specific guidelines from state cosmetology board). Washoe County released specific guidelines for all industries with shortcuts to the following
Phase 1 update
The short version of Phase 1 reopening means that restaurants and retail can transition to 50% capacity or less and that nail and hair salons can reopen following new guidelines from the state cosmetology board.
Phase 1 comes with requirements for employees to wear masks. At the Downtown Reno Partnership we ask that everyone else also wear masks to set an example for the rest of the city.
Ultimately, the County takes precedent over the reopening for downtown. Their guide is a comprehensive list of mandatory and recommended best practices for different business types and customers.
The Downtown Reno Ambassadors are doing their part by keeping tabs on downtown residents, business owners and people in need. They are also disinfecting surfaces around downtown: doors, benches, railings. If you need assistance, call them at 775-313-4080.
