As with most of the United States, and the world, the Covid-19 Pandemic is causing closures and cancellations in Metropolis. Currently, the State of IL is in Phase 3 of Restore Illinois.
Under Phase 3 Metropolis retail businesses are open. Dining facilities open with curbside and outdoor dining. Hotels are operating at full capacity. Fort Massac State Park and Mermet Fish & Wildlife Area are open. Playgrounds at Fort Massac are still closed at this time, but all shelters and picnic areas are open. Gathers are restricted to 10 people or less at this time.
The Super City Brew Fest has been postponed until Saturday, September 12th, 2020. At this time, we are still planning to host the Fort Massac Encampment, however the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will determine if it is safe to have the event. Continue to watch the website, Facebook and Instagram (@HomeofSuperman for both accounts) for the latest about events and Metropolis Tourism.
For the safety of our visitors and residents we recommend following the CDC safety guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
