As I am sure many of you have already heard, a number of events scheduled for the coming days, including Luckypalooza and the St. Patrick's Day parade, have been canceled due to COVID-19. While we are disappointed to miss out on some of our favorite events of the year, it is important that all of us do our part to keep our community healthy.
We're fortunate to have a great team of leaders and resources at Saint Paul-Ramsey County Public Health. Information has been changing by the hour, but up to date details can be found at :
At this time I would implore everyone to keep up the habits we're growing accustomed to: practice social distancing, avoid going out if you're feeling unwell, cover your cough and of course, wash your hands regularly with soap and water.
We will continue to share information as we have it available.
Finally, we've got a bit of brighter news below. The brand new Springhill Suites is scheduled to open in a few weeks. We had the pleasure of meeting with their general manager, Jim Sele, and getting a tour earlier this week. The hotel is beautiful and will be a truly wonderful addition to downtown. Congrats to everyone involved. Be sure as well to check out what the Saints announced this week.
See you all around (down)town,
The Saint Paul Downtown Alliance
