Covid-19 Virus Update.
An inherent risk of exposure to the Covid-19 Virus appears to have lessened but not totally gone away. It still exists in any public place where people are present. The Covid-19 Virus is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to sever illness and even death. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Senior Citizens and Guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. We’re not requiring face coverings of crew or passengers at this time but will do so if requested.

By booking a ride with Buzzards Glory Balloon Company, LLC you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to The Covid-19 Virus.
