As Northwestern Pennsylvania moves to expectations that the shelter-in-place restrictions will gradually be lifted from phase red to yellow then to green; VisitErie, Erie’s primary tourism promotion agency, has formed the Erie County Tourism Recovery Task Force. This Task Force has developed and communicated a report that outlines implemented, planned and suggested protocols for the safe reopening of Erie County hospitality businesses. Through this collaborative effort, VisitErie’s goal is to assist in the reopening of the industry in accordance with government regulations to best protect potential visitors and Erie County residents.
VisitErie developed a report detailing safety efforts being taken by organizations in six sectors of Erie’s hospitality industry: Accommodations, Restaurants, Large Attractions, Small Attractions/Retail, Facilities and Transportation. The report includes information on what each sector is doing to ensure readiness to open. The information will also be used to reassure our visitors, sports rights holders and convention planners that Erie County is a safe destination.
