Coronavirus in California - Travel Information

With one of the nation’s highest vaccination rates and lowest case rates, California is open to welcome visitors. 

Large events (over 10,000 people outdoors or 1,000 indoors), including theme parks and large sporting events, may have vaccination or testing requirements. Attendees should check guidelines with event operators when buying tickets or making reservations. 

Masks are required for everyone in indoor public settings in many counties, including Los Angeles, and recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control for indoor public settings in most of the state.

For more guidance, here is a collection of California’s local and regional tourism offices.

California Wildfires - Travel Information 

As is typical during the West’s fire season, there are several active fires in California. Most are burning in rural, mountainous regions in the inland north and central part of the state.

A short portion of Highway 101 north of Santa Barbara is closed due to the Alisal Fire but tourism businesses in the city remain open.

Parts of Lassen, Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks are closed. Yosemite and other national parks remain open. 

For fire and road conditions across California, visit Cal Fire and Caltrans. Access air quality information at West Coast Travel Facts.
