TRAVEL ADVISORY FOR COVID-19
In a place like Wyoming, we’re used to social distancing. But, at the request and advisement of health experts and professionals, we’re taking it one step further. While we’re in the business of marketing travel, we’re also in the business of taking care of our community. As such, we’re heeding the call to formally practice social distancing as a way to keep our community — from our frontline workers to grocery store clerks and maintenance crews to outdoor enthusiasts and travelers — safe. What this means: we still want you to visit Casper, Wyoming. We just want you to wait.
For now, we invite you to start dreaming of and planning your future visit to Casper. Peruse our website and get to know this place. Practice your fly-casting skills on your front lawn while you perfect casting and hook setting for a future fishing trip to the North Platte River. Take the time now to learn about the history of the Oregon, California, Mormon and Pony Express trails and take a virtual visit to Independence Rock. And remember, Wyoming and Casper aren’t going anywhere. When the time is right, we’ll be right here, ready to welcome you with our classic cowboy nod, two-fingered wave, bison burgers, made-right-here beer and spirits and the warm hospitality you’ve come to expect in Wyoming.
Safety recommendations from the CDC for residents and travelers:
- Governor Gordon has issued a state of emergency and is asking for social distancing to be a priority for everyone. Stay 6 feet away from the people around you.
- Practice hygienic hand-washing. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds often and be sure to wash your hands after grocery shopping, touching doors and surfaces, etc. If you sneeze or cough, be sure to wash your hands with soap and water immediately.
- Do not touch your face.
- If you sneeze or cough, be sure to cover your mouth and nose. Use a tissue and throw the tissue away immediately.
- If you are ill, stay home.
- If you have a fever, cough or are having difficulty breathing, seek medical care.
For our Casper locals and industry partners, we’re standing right here beside you. We know how important travel and tourism are to our economy and the impacts this will have and is already having throughout Natrona County. We also know that the time is now to be proactive and put social distancing to work in a way that we never have before. You can still get groceries, fill up your car with gas, order take-out from local restaurants and get outside for a hike, walk and bike ride in our wide-open spaces and trails, all while practicing social distancing. From all of us at Visit Casper to you, we know that we can and will get through this together.
