Travel Updates: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) that began in late 2019 has spread across the globe, impacting travel throughout the world — including California.
Gov. Gavin Newsom has ordered residents to stay home indefinitely to slow the spread of the virus. Exceptions involve only essential trips, such as those for grocery shopping and health care appointments. As a result, virtually all tourist attractions — theme parks, ski resorts, entertainment venues, restaurants, wineries, many state and national parks, including Yosemite National Park — are closed until further notice.
Please note that many of California’s rural outdoor destinations have limited health care facilities and are not equipped to welcome an influx of visitors at this time. California residents and non-residents alike are therefore encouraged to avoid these places until travel restrictions are revised.
For more travel advisories and information, please refer to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Travel section. Also, here is a collection of local and regional tourism offices, where you can find advisories specific to that destination.
Thank you, and be safe.
