Please know that we continue to welcome visitors to Gettysburg. All current expert advice indicates that travel in the U.S. can continue as normal and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is encouraging the same personal best practices that are standard for a typical flu season – frequent washing of hands, use of sanitizing wipes and consulting with a doctor before traveling when sick, and staying up to date on vaccinations, etc. We will continue to follow the guidance offered by the CDC, as well as state and local public health authorities.  Gettysburg Tours, Inc. will follow best practices in cleaning and sanitizing our buses and facilities.
