In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the health and safety of everyone is Downtown Kearney’s top priority and we are closely monitoring the situation. We are making decisions based on state and federal guidelines. While mass gatherings are not allowed, many of our merchants remain open. For a safe experience, they are taking all necessary precautions which include guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), our local Department of Health and the City of Kearney. We continue to support the operations of our merchants. However, some of them may have temporarily adjusted their operation. Please see below for specific information.
