Because we want everyone to have a happy and healthy holiday season, we ask that any holiday gatherings with family and friends be postponed if at all possible. “It has the potential to save your life as well as the lives of those you care about.”
A travel ban implies that no one is allowed to travel, with the exception of emergency vehicles such as police cars, fire trucks, ambulances, and snowplows.
When there is a warning against needless travel, this is known as a travel advisory. It is not recommended to go on a journey if it is possible to postpone it until the advice is removed.
Sheron said that the prohibition was changed following discussions with the County Manager, the Coordinator of Emergency Management Services, and the Highway Superintendent of Genesee County.
