Grand Island Convention and Visitor Bureau’s goal is to keep our guests and tourism community healthy so we can continue to provide the best support and information to our partners and visitors. We are implementing steps to keep operations running smoothly while curtailing the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), such as having some staff work from home.
