Travel Tips For Troubling Times

Please follow all travel guidelines and visitation restrictions when tripping to new destinations.

Always check with businesses to determine current hours, group limitations, and service availability BEFORE setting out on your journey to avoid any possible disappointments.

Show respect to workers in every industry.

Have patience.

If you’re having a hard time, imagine what it’s like for small operations to cope in these difficult times.

Be Kind.

Costs for goods are rising, and stores can no longer absorb the increasing charges and survive. We all have to pay higher prices; be understanding.

Say Please and Thank you. These small common courtesies go a long way.

Smile, even if you’re masked. Happy sentiments show in your eyes and your manner.

Wash your hands.
