Safe Travel Information

Below is up-to-date information on coronavirus and safety for visitors to San Diego.

Find Happy. Stay Healthy.

San Diego is doing everything possible to keep you healthy and safe during your visit. Our tourism and hospitality businesses are all following the best-in-class public health practices so you can feel confident as you enjoy all our destination has to offer.

San Diego is currently operating under the “Orange Tier” guidelines provided by the State of California. Hotels are currently open, as are San Diego's beautiful parks, beaches, museums and attractions. Dining is permitted outdoors and indoors at limited capacity. Retail and shopping centers are open as well.

To protect both visitors and locals, all open businesses must follow the Safe Reopening Plan laid out by the County of San Diego. Operations and hours at many businesses have shifted to ensure the safety of guests. We recommend verifying any business' status directly with them before planning a visit, and we encourage all visitors to follow the guidance of our Safe Travel Pledge below.

Please note that travel across the U.S.-Mexico border is currently only allowed for trade and essential purposes.

We look forward to welcoming you back to San Diego so you can create incredible memories—safely.
