COVID-19 Travel Information

Lake Martin Tourism Association wants you to have a safe and healthy experience when visiting our little piece of paradise.  We encourage you to learn more about travel safety recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization, and the Alabama Department of Health.

Tips to staying safe when travelling:

  • Wash or sanitize your hands frequently
  • Avoid close contact with others outside of your household
  • Wear face coverings when interacting with others
  • Follow social distancing guidelines
  • Stay at home if you have a cough, fever or other symptoms
  • Use a credit or debit card when possible

Please be advised that Governor Kay Ivey extended the current health order through January 22.  This health order includes the mandatory use of face masks. 

  • Masks can be factory-made, homemade, or improvised from household items such as scarves, bandanas, or t-shirts, and must cover the nose and mouth.
  • Masks or face coverings must be worn when you are within six (6) feet of a person from another household in all indoor spaces open to the general public, a vehicle operated by a transportation service (including buses, taxis, Lyft and Uber), or outdoor public spaces where ten or more people are gathered.
  • There are five categories of exceptions. The largest category, exceptions for “practical necessity,” covers people or situations where mask use is incompatible with the realities of life—for example, children six or younger, people with certain medical conditions or disabilities, eating and drinking, medical and dental procedures, and so on. There are also categories of exceptions for exercise, for communicating with an audience, and for certain essential job functions. An additional category carves out narrow exceptions for protected activities like voting and religious worship— but even then, wearing a mask is strongly encouraged. Full details on exceptions can be found in the order and FAQ.
  • There can be a $500 fine for not wearing a mask.
  • You can learn how to make your own face mask here
