Retail stores, recreational businesses, and historical/cultural sites

This broad category covers a wide variety of enterprises that contribute significantly to the RI economy: retail businesses, farmer’s markets, recreational businesses (such as golf courses, driving ranges, outdoor mini golf courses, batting cages, go-kart tracks, rail biking, bumper cars, zoos, horseback riding, and many others), and historical/cultural sites. To help you reopen as safely as possible, we have established protocols designed to protect you, your staff, and your customers. Here you’ll find all the information you need about anything that is required of, recommended for, and relevant to reopening your enterprise. Please read it carefully, familiarize yourself with it, and refer to it whenever necessary. This information may be updated at any time, so check back often.
