Adirondack Traveler Information
We are committed to ensuring that every experience in the Adirondacks is the best it can be and look forward to welcoming you with public health and safety as our top priority.
Do your part - follow the guidelines!
It is important that all residents and visitors continue to observe safe practices.
- Come vaccinated, thank you.
- Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread COVID-19. “Fully vaccinated” is defined as two or more weeks after receiving the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
- Wear a mask when indoors, thank you.
- While this may not be the case where you are from, we ask that you respect local protocols and rules while visiting our small communities. All Adirondack businesses have the right to refuse service to anyone not wearing a mask that covers their mouth and nose.
- Wash your hands often and when you cannot, sanitize your hands.
- Monitor symptoms.
- If any symptoms develop, travelers must immediately self-isolate and contact the local public health authority or their healthcare provider to determine if they should seek testing. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and rest.
- If you are unvaccinated:
- Social distance at all times
- Only dine outside at restaurants
- Do not enter any indoor facilities without a mask
Kindness is the Adirondack way
The world is understaffed, and so are we. Please be patient with all of those who are working hard to provide the welcoming, laid-back experience the Adirondacks are so well known for. Remember, kindness can move mountains.
Information for Canadian travelers
As of November 8, the border between Canada and the United States is open! We are excited to welcome our neighbors to the north back to the Adirondacks for safe, fun getaways and adventures. Although the border is open, anyone traveling between the US and Canada must follow certain rules that allow for safe travel, including proof of vaccination and proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

Plan before you go
To ensure you have the most up-to-date information, it is important to check directly with the specific restaurant, lodging property, attraction, etc., that you want to visit. Please note that many of our area attractions are requiring advanced ticket purchasing and reservations.
