What to Expect

There is nothing more important than the health and well-being of our residents and visitors. The entire Hudson community has taken every precaution to be in compliance with the current federal and state reopening guidelines, and most businesses are going above and beyond that. Please adhere to social distancing guidelines whenever in public and kindly follow any additional directives that local businesses have instituted, including limiting the number of patrons at an establishment at any given time, limiting the amount you touch merchandise in stores or try on articles of clothing, and completing contact trace forms, which some businesses are requiring upon entry.

Walk the City’s Shared Streets

Hudson Shared StreetsTo help Hudson businesses reopen safely and create space for safe physical distancing to prioritize the health of our community amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the City of Hudson, in partnership with Hudson Hall and FUTURE HUDSON, has implemented a Shared Streets program that is currently running through the end of October. It’s the perfect way to enjoy everything the City has to offer, while keeping you and your family safe.
