We (Joan & Sharon) have had many discussions about what kinds of bus trips to plan for the future. The Delta variant of the COVID virus is of great concern considering the fact that the number of infections and deaths are currently on the rise, particularly in Florida. The forecast is for an even greater surge in infections and deaths in October/November this year. It is not the news we were hoping for.
We have made a commitment to honor the rights of our travelers. This means we will not ask any of our bus travelers for proof of being vaccinated nor require any of them to wear a mask on the bus. At the same time we feel it is important for us, as trip planners, to plan trips that reduce the risk of our travelers becoming infected. For now and until the time when COVID is more under control , this is our plan:
No trips to heavily populated cities. Cities such as Tampa and Orlando present a much greater risk for infection. For the time being this rules out theatrical productions at the Straz Theater, Ruth Eckerd Hall, and the Dr. Phillips Center.
Trips will be very selective. We may plan trips to venues that are of less risk to travelers. Some examples are dinner theaters in more rural areas and outdoor venues (boat trips, baseball games, gardens, etc.). Outdoor venues are risky to plan because having good weather is very important. We may forego planning any bus trips that occur for the remainder of 2021. Time will tell.
We thank you for your cooperation and your support. We hope that we can resume to normal operations soon.
Thank you CCDT members for your great response to the August 8th trip announcement for the "Ring of Fire" tribute to Johnny Cash. We not only sold out all the open seats we had within the first week, but Joan ordered a bigger bus and more theater seating and we sold out of those too! If you are reading this and want to attend this event please contact Joan to get on the wait list. We really use our wait list on every trip. Click here to see the trip flyer.
