Travel Updates: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Updated 3/12/20 – As has been widely reported, cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) have been found in the United States, including in Indiana. We encourage visitors to consult the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local public health authorities when booking trips. Further, we recommend that visitors follow the CDC’s list of safety guidelines, including:
- Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60%-95% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid contact with sick people.
People at higher risk of getting sick should follow Indiana State Department of Health recommendations to protect themselves.
Some group gatherings have been postponed, and some communities may have more specific health guidelines. Travelers planning a visit should call their hotel and local visitors bureau for information specific to their locations.
