Additional COVID-19 Resources

Resource Guides

Resource GuideBizLaunch, the Arlington Restaurant and Arlington County Police Department worked closely together to develop this Resource Guide to assist restaurants and businesses with the transition into Phase Three.

The goal was to provide information and tips that will help businesses plan to reopen as safely as possible. It details the mandatory business requirements for Phase One and also provides best practices for ensuring the health and safety of customers and employees as we implement Phase Three. 

Business Survey Results

As the COVID-19 crisis was in its early stages, AED recognized the importance of tracking the effects of the pandemic on Arlington’s business community. To do this, AED designed a series of business surveys which captured a snapshot of what Arlington business were facing -- and shared that information with Arlington County leadership so they would have a better understanding of the needs of the community. The results of those surveys are posted here.
