Labor Day Travelers Still Find A Way To Celebrate

DULUTH, Minn. – Labor day may feel a little different this year, but many travelers across the Northland are looking to celebrate the best way they know how.

I’m going to hang out with some family and friends. Possibly do some four-wheeling,’  said Andre Jackson.

Pequot Lakes resident Sarah Dawdy said “we have visitors here from central Illinois. They have never been to this part of the state. The most beautiful place we could take them was up on the North Shore.”

As the COVID-19 pandemic still lingers, it may be putting a damper on many people’s travel plans.

While there are still risks, some travelers aren’t letting it hold them back.

“I have a great deal of respect for COVID-19. I also know that if people are careful and follow the rules the pandemic isn’t going to stop them from doing what they want to do,” said Dawdy.

For others still celebrating the holiday means getting back to what seems normal.

“I feel like a lot of people are disconnected while friends and family have to stay home all the time with the pandemic going around,” said Jackson. “I feel like it’s still good to get out, be around people, talk, and interact.”

Whether you are getting out or staying close to home, safety should always be the top priority in the midst of the ongoing health crisis.
