A Message from Discover Lancaster

Discover Lancaster is monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and its impacts on travel to Lancaster County.

March 20, 2020

Travel Guidance, including closures/cancellations

Our top priority is the well-being of our guests, staff, and the broader community.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has instituted a statewide order prohibiting non-essential activity and face-to-face interaction, including the closure of the physical locations of all non-life-sustaining businesses. Restaurant take-out & delivery are still permitted, and lodging properties are allowed to remain open.

Thus, in an abundance of caution and following the recommendations of health and public officials, the majority of our tourism partners have closed to the public for the present time. This preventive action also applies to most local events, and to our Visitors Center.

We’ll be glad to welcome you here once any coronavirus precautions have passed.
