"C.A.R.E.S. [ Columbus’ Amazing Resources Ensure Safety ] is our pledge, the community’s pledge, that safety is first in the changing travel environment we're currently navigating."

- Peter Bowden, President and CEO of VisitColumbusGA

VisitColumbusGA's extensive research has indicated safety as the primary concern for travelers in 2020. 

Columbus C.A.R.E.S. is community-wide program to communicate what local businesses and organizations in our city are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy.  

The C.A.R.E.S. Pledge utilizes the latest COVID-19 health and safety guidelines from the CDC listed here.

Upon taking the pledge, each local business and organization has been provided a toolkit from VisitColumbusGA to display at their place of business.


It is our goal that the Columbus C.A.R.E.S. program, provides visitors with the resources needed for a safe and enjoyable trip to Columbus, GA.
