The ALX Promise
Alexandria is a city known for going above and beyond. It’s the type of place where business owners know their customers by name. Patrons return because they know they’ll receive personalized service and extraordinary care. The Alexandria Health Department and Visit Alexandria are celebrating that same spirit through the ALX Promise program. We know that as you dine outdoors at local restaurants, shop at your favorite retailers, stay overnight at our hotels and enjoy experiences that inspire, safety is a top priority. The ALX Promise shield displayed on a business’ window or website indicates that they have committed to higher safety standards for employees and customers than the minimum rules required by law for all businesses.
Face coverings are required in all public indoor spaces except when drinking, eating or exercising, as well as outdoors when 6 feet of physical distancing cannot be maintained.
Studies show that spending time unmasked indoors at businesses such as restaurants and gyms significantly increases your risk of contracting COVID-19, even when physical distancing is present. Getting food to-go, dining outside and taking part in virtual activities from home are much safer.
