Police Officers in the U.S.:

Please do not be afraid to approach a police officer and ask for help. Police officers are public servants and can be trusted. They will not ask you for money and if you are lost, do not hesitate to ask for directions.

  • Wear a helmet if you are biking, skiing, snowboarding, etc

COVID 19 Tips:

  • Social distance as much as you can. Wear a cloth face covering if you can't social distance. 

  • Wash hands often. Bring hand sanitizer and disposable disinfecting wipes with you when you travel in case you do not have soap and water to wash your hands. 

  • Try not to touch things other people touch. When you travel, you may want to use a disposable tissue or napkin to touch things like handrails, door handles, elevator buttons, etc. 

  • Try to use vendors and accommodations that take steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their business.
