Tourism Community Resource Page

In this time of social distancing and isolation, it is more important than ever that we stay united in spirit and support one another through the uncertainty.

Close to 18,000 of our family, friends, and neighbors depend on tourism for their livelihood; many have been seriously impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

While we wait for our new normal to start, Visit Omaha has collected valuable links and resources to help our friends, who are currently furloughed or laid off, plan their next steps.

Browse below to explore options that may assist you and your family during this time. If we take care of each other, we'll get through this together.
