Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit. By visiting Howe Caverns, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
The CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from Coronavirus.

Guests should evaluate their own risk in determining whether to attend. By attending, you are agreeing that you and your party:
- Do not currently have a cough or shortness of breath
- Do not have a history of chronic illness
- Do not have a compromised immune system
- Are not considered high-risk
- Have not been asked to self-quarantine or self-isolate
- Have not had close contact with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19 infection within the last 14 days
Again, the health and safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to Howe Caverns.
