U.S. Travel Encourages Wearing Masks, Following Health Guideline


The U.S. Travel Association is now officially encouraging the wearing of masks and other healthy travel practices as we head into the Fourth of July holiday weekend and throughout the summer travel season, in an attempt to contain the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

In a statement, U.S. Travel Association president and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement: “While Americans move about certain regions of the country, we are keenly aware of the increase in cases as we head into the Fourth of July holiday weekend, traditionally a busy period for travel. The travel community strongly urges visitors and residents alike to wear masks and adhere to all healthy practices, such as physical distancing, frequent hand washing and remaining home if sick—no matter where you may be traveling in the country.

“A wealth of information from medical experts points to the value of mask wearing as a key tool in preventing the spread of infection. Health and safety are paramount to restarting travel and putting Americans back to work, and our industry’s recovery is contingent on businesses and travelers alike doing their part to ensure a healthy and safe travel experience for all along the journey.”

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But just
    imagine if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could definitely
    be one of the greatest in its field. Superb blog!
