Ready to head out on the open road for your Pure Michigan getaway? 

In addition to packing your sunscreen and hiking boots, don’t forget your hand sanitizer and face masks. It is safe to travel again, but please remember to follow the local safety protocols as well as the CDC travel guidelines. For more information on how the State of Michigan is committed to keeping visitors and residents safe, visit michigan.gov


Explore the places and businesses throughout Michigan that have taken the Pure Michigan Pledge in commitment to upholding disinfecting and social distancing protocols. If you're a tourism business that would like to take the pledge, learn more here.
 
To keep informed on travel information and restrictions pertaining to specific Michigan destinations and their attractions, lodging, restaurants and more, please refer to local official tourism websites. Destinations throughout Michigan are also closing their downtown streets to traffic to create safer, walkable environments that allow visitors and residents to socially distance.


Continue to protect yourself and others by following these CDC Guidelines:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home. If possible, maintain 6 feet from the household member who is sick.

  • Put distance between yourself and other people when you are traveling.

  • Wear a cloth face mask or covering in public.

  • If you feel ill while you are away from home, you can still get tested. Local testing sites can be found here.

  • When you return home, it is important to keep your distance from people who are at a higher risk of getting very sick.
