While we can’t forecast what will be required for the restart of our visitor industry, we can begin preparing. 

Research shows that travelers are looking to destination marketing organizations (DMOs) websites, like traveljuneau.com, for assurances that a destination is taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and is responding. They want to know that communities are doing everything reasonably expected to limit exposure to and transmission of COVID-19 and other diseases. 

Participation is easy: Call us at 907-586-1737. We will tag your account and your business name will show as a Juneau Cares participant on the We Care page!
