Dear Tourism Industry,
What a trying few days this has been and we know there are many hard days ahead of us. As we prepared to send out this latest update on COVID-19, I want to take a moment to share some personal thoughts.
In the past few days, I have been completely blown away with the people who represent the Kansas Tourism Industry. Our industry is going through an extremely difficult time, we all have more questions than answers, and many of us have had times these past few days of feeling completely at a loss with what to do next. Amid all of that, I have never been prouder to be a part of the Kansas Tourism Industry. You continue to be thoughtful and strategic in your decisions, you are developing creative and innovative ways of providing for our visitors, and most importantly, you are looking out for each other.
We have challenging days ahead of us. I do not have all the answers. What I can promise you is that I, along with the entire Kansas Tourism team, am working hard to champion and support the Kansas hospitality industry. We will do everything we can to find the answers together.
Please continue to keep in touch. We will be ok.
Ad Astra per Aspera, my friends.
Bridgette Jobe, Director of Tourism
