In efforts to help visitors prepare for an enjoyable summer of discoveries, the Delaware Tourism Office launched a Go-To Guide in partnership with the state’s restaurants, hotels, and attractions to show visitors how to travel to the state safely.
The guide outlines specific information on visiting Delaware, from guidelines for relaxing at the beaches to staying at a hotel to eating out at one of the state’s many delicious dining options.
Delaware Tourism worked directly with the Division of Public Health on the guide and its central messaging, including: Bring a face covering to wear in public; wash your hands early and often; stay six feet away from anyone outside your travel group.
Anyone who is sick should stay home.
The effort seeks to reinforce the importance of planning trips – even if just a day trip – ahead of time so travellers can be safe and prepared. This effort comes in advance of the Fourth of July holiday, a popular time for travel to the state.
“We can all help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our state while enjoying Delaware’s favourite attractions if we follow public health guidance and act responsibly with a sense of community,” said Gov. John Carney. “It’s important that visitors know what is required to protect Delaware’s hard-fought progress against this virus. Wear a face covering. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. If you’re sick, stay home. Travel may look a little different this year, but if you plan, you will still enjoy your visit to Delaware.”
In addition to the Go-To Guide, Delaware Tourism staff will be on call as discovery advisors for visitors looking for personalized travel suggestions. Tourists may go to www.visitdelaware.com/discoveryadvisors to share what they’re hoping to do while in Delaware, and the office’s experts will send back suggestions depending on what is open and available.
“With a bit of planning, including reaching out to a discovery advisor, you can absolutely have a summer to remember,” said Liz Keller, Delaware Tourism director. “Discover an off-the-beaten-path attraction. Enjoy takeout from a favourite restaurant. You’ll get the most out of your getaway if you’re prepared and follow the health guidelines in place across the state.”
