Governor Baker announced his four phase reopening plan for Massachusetts. Each phase will last a minimum of three weeks, and moving from one phase to the next will depend on meeting key public health metrics. Bus tours will be allowed to run in phase three, which will begin no earlier than July 6. All tours have been cancelled or re-scheduled all tours through July 6, and will wait to hear the Governors direction before proceeding with future trips.
I am looking forward to the day we can run trips again, and wanted to share with you the procedures that I am putting in place for phase three, following the Governors guidelines to ensure safe travels:
Until further notice, when you arrive at the bus, you will need to be wearing a mask if you can not keep six feet between you and other passengers, and if you arrive without a mask, a disposable mask will be given to you.
I have purchased no-contact thermometers, and your temperature will be taken before you enter the motorcoach. If you have a temperature, you will not be allowed to travel. During this time, we will offer a refund to anyone that arrives at the motorcoach and is not allowed to travel because they have a fever.
Your tour director will give you a pocket-size bottle of hand sanitizer to use on the tour and keep afterwards.
While in phase three, we will limit the passenger numbers and practice social distancing with our seating plan, as much as possible. When entering and exiting the motorcoach, we will allow extra time so that there is a 6-foot distance from each other.
Bloom Bus Company is also ensuring that the motorcoaches are sanitized daily and they have installed hand sanitizer bottles at the top of the stairs for use when you enter and exit the motorcoach.
In this challenging time for all of us, please know that our top concern is protecting the health & well being of our travellers. With the situation changing daily, we will keep this page updated with current information on all of our upcoming tours. Keep in mind that even tours still listed below as "active" could change in the future. If you are signed up for any of these tours, we will contact you by mail to notify you of the cancellation.
Cape Cod is a strong community and at times of crisis we all pull together and will make it through. Please take care of one another and keep yourselves safe. We will hopefully see you all on tour before too much longer!
