Visit Morgan County is closely monitoring this situation as it evolves. The health and wellness of our visitors, industry partners and residents is our highest priority. The coronavirus outbreak is a rapidly evolving situation and we encourage you to stay informed and follow any guidance offered by national and local authorities.
At this point, there are no travel restrictions in place at this time, though travelers are encouraged to always exercise healthy habits when traveling and to follow any and all guidance issued by public health officials. As of Monday, March 16, restaurants and bars throughout the state of Indiana will be closing for dine in service. Carryout, delivery and curbside service may be available, and may vary by establishment. Please call ahead. We will continue to update this list of open restaurants.
Many previously scheduled events, particularly events expecting large crowds, are being rescheduled and/or canceled, so please call ahead to check the status of events and specific refund policies. Morgan County area attractions, hotels and other venues may still be open for business and many are instituting additional protective measures in order to safeguard the health and well being of their visitors. We encourage travelers to call ahead to confirm your plans and ensure that you are aware of any changes. Area parks, trails and other outdoor areas are still accessible and are a great way to safely get out of the house as you practice social distancing. Here are some of our favorite paved trails and open spaces.
Visit Morgan County is working with state and local officials, national travel industry authorities and our local hospitality partners to take proper precautions now, and to continue to promote healthy and positive travel experiences to our area in the future. Our office is currently closed to the public and staff is working primarily from home. We are accessible via email and messaging on our social media accounts. We will continue to monitor those accounts, update our events calendar with the latest information and post on our social media pages with general information about the area, local businesses and general inspirational photos and posts.
We encourage you to stay home and enjoy this unexpected downtime with your loved ones. We will welcome your visitation to our area again as soon as it is safe to do so.
