  • Latest Updates

    As of June 15, California has lifted many of the restrictions that have affected hotels, restaurants, wineries, theme parks, and more since 2020.

    California still encourages visitors and residents to get vaccinated and, in line with CDC regulations, wear face coverings in congested environments. Here are some additional details of the reopening:

    • All state and national parks and beaches are open, with only limited closures at some sites.
    • Visitors are encouraged to be vaccinated before coming to California, but it is not a requirement to travel.
    • Operators of large outdoor events of more than 10,000 people, including professional sporting events and some theme parks, are encouraged to screen attendees for vaccinations or negative COVID-19 tests, but screening is not mandatory.
    • Operators of large indoor events of more than 5,000 people are required to screen attendees for vaccinations or negative COVID-19 tests. Attendees should check guidelines with event operators when buying tickets or making reservations.
