Face Coverings & Physical Distancing

Face Coverings: Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health announced that face masks are required in the State of California* as of June 28, 2020, for those ages three and older.

  • A face mask or similar article that completely covers your nose and mouth is required while in hotel public areas as well as when out walking, shopping, and dining (masks can be removed for eating and drinking).
  • Masks are required if you are inside of, or in line to enter any indoor public space, picking up food from your car window, and while waiting for, and on all public transportation and rideshares.
  • Masks are also required when in outdoor public spaces. If you’re on less populated trails or engaged in outdoor recreation at the beach such as running, biking, and walking, pull up your mask when you encounter other people in close proximity. You don’t need to wear a mask in the water.

Keep Your Distance: Practicing physical distancing is required. Please remain six feet away from those not in your traveling party at all times.

Respect California

Visit Dana Point joins Visit California in its call for safe and responsible travel throughout the state this summer and beyond. We support the Responsible Travel Code launched earlier this month, which asks visitors to travel with RESPECT by committing to seven best practices when exploring the Golden State:

  • Roam Responsibly
  • Educate Myself
  • Safety First
  • Preserve California
  • Embrace Community
  • Celebrate Culture
  • Teach Others

The code marries the imperative to travel safely amid the coronavirus pandemic with California’s ongoing effort to encourage visitors, tourism industry partners and Californians to create a sustainable and respectful environment for all. As the code’s preamble pinpoints, “Respect is the key to keeping each other safe and all of California’s precious and fragile beauty protected, today and tomorrow.”
