Granite State Visitor Code of Conduct
As New Hampshire continues to flex open businesses and recreation, it’s important to recognize that we’re all responsible for keeping each other safe and healthy. Do your part by following our Granite State Visitor Code of Conduct.
Know Before You Go
- Have a Plan – think about where you want to go before you leave home and familiarize yourself with what to expect when you get there.
- Review the website of the places you wish to visit to learn about any restrictions or special instructions for visiting in advance of arrival.
- Businesses and outdoor recreation areas are following state-issued guidelines.
- Visit our COVID-19 Business Updates page for more information and to see what’s open in the area. (NOTE: we added this, but this could change for different properties or organizations.)
- Check for updates! The guidelines provided today might be different tomorrow.
Don’t Go If You Don’t Feel Well
- If you or anyone traveling with you is feeling ill and/or has any of the COVID-19 symptoms, please reschedule your visit. We look forward to seeing you when you’re feeling better!
- Bring personal protective gear like hand sanitizer and masks. Many, but not all, businesses will have these available for guests as part of being open for business, but it’s a good idea to have your own as well.
When You Arrive
Expect things to be different
Each business is adapting to the new realities posed by COVID-19, and we encourage you to embrace the changes designed to protect the health of guests and employees.
Follow On-Site Guidance
Follow the guidance provided on signs and notices located at businesses and recreational areas such as:
- Physical distancing
- Practicing good hygiene
- Wearing a mask, when practical or required
- Skip the trip if you or any of your travel companions are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or don’t feel well.
With new guidance and plans in place for businesses to operate safely, you may need to wait longer than usual to do the things you love. And the staff are probably learning new ways of doing things too in this unprecedented time, so cut them a little slack. But we also like to think that good things are worth waiting for, so be patient!
Front line employees at attractions, restaurants, lodging properties, retail shops, and others are the most exposed to the coronavirus. For their safety and yours, please respect business requests for you to wear masks, keep a safe distance (generally 6 feet apart), and practice CDC-recommended prevention measures.
Respect Others’ Space
Different people have different levels of concern for the pandemic virus, and therefore may be more – or less – worried about close contact with others. Please be thoughtful about this as you stay 6 feet from others and wear a mask when in public areas.
