Read about five ways you can experience our community safely and responsibly.  
 

What can I expect?

In Laramie, there’s space to be adventurous and free, while simultaneously traveling ethically. With plenty of naturally distanced activities to participate in, visitors can unwind and relax in the natural splendor and safety of Southeastern Wyoming with peace of mind. Join us in following these guidelines, in order to preserve the health and well-being of our natural spaces and community.

  • Before embarking on your journey, be aware of your health. While Wyoming doesn’t currently enforce any travel restrictions, Laramie does require all of its guests to be conscientious of their health before visiting. Don’t travel if you, or people in your party, are feeling unwell, have a fever, or are exhibiting cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms.
     
  • For years, Laramie visitors and local wildlife have co-existed by keeping a respectable distance. In the same spirit, visitors are now encouraged to maintain 6-feet of social distancing from one another whenever possible.
     
  • Visitors are encouraged to wear a mask in public spaces and whenever social distancing isn’t feasible. This includes, but is not limited to when shopping, waiting to be served, and in other socially confined scenarios.
     
  • In addition to wearing personal protective equipment and social distancing, we request that visitors also wash their hands regularly when passing through high-contact areas. For your convenience, sanitizing stations are available throughout downtown. Additionally, carrying travel-sized hand sanitizer is an inexpensive and convenient alternative when handwashing isn’t an option.
     
  • Whenever possible, minimize contact with other visitors. Arrive early to beat the crowds at attractions and retail stores, call ahead to secure reservations at restaurants, or order take out and opt for curbside delivery.
