Rules for Dining Out in Louisville

Local businesses and their staff are working hard to keep our community safe.

The same rules apply to both indoor and outdoor dining and residents are asked to be respectful and patient with restaurants and their staff as they adjust to these new regulations:

  1. Facial coverings are required for anyone age 3 and older when:
    • Food and drink are finished being consumed.
    • Ordering, paying, or otherwise interacting with employees or other customers.
    • Entering and exiting the restaurant or outdoor dining area
  2. Facial coverings may be removed to eat and drink.
  3. Maximum of 8 people per party.
  4. Maintain 6 feet of distance where possible.
  5. Contactless payment is preferred.
  6. If you’re feeling sick, stay at home.
  7. Be respectful, patient, and kind.

Customers who are sick or not feeling well, have recently traveled outside of the US, or may have come into contact with someone with COVID-19 should not enter businesses (including outdoor dining spaces).

Facial covering exceptions

In accordance with Louisville City Ordinance, customers and staff age 3 and older must wear a cloth, non-medical facial covering that covers the nose and mouth. If you are exempt from wearing a facial covering under the Louisville City Ordinance, just tell your host and server, “I’m exempt”. No other information is necessary. A complete list of exceptions is available from each restaurant and can also be viewed at
