COVID-19 Information

 

Visit SLO CAL

Visit SLO CAL is carefully monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 and its impact on the Travel & Tourism industry.

On September 22nd, the County of San Luis Obispo moved into the Tier 2 (Red), meaning that our county can move further into re-opening effective immediately.

We have compiled a list of resources our industry partners can use to educate themselves, their employees and their guests about the virus.

 

Visit SLO CAL has created an "Open and Safe Toolkit" which includes flyers, social media banners and profile picture frames, to help our partners communicate with guests the health and safety precautions your businesses are taking to keep everyone safe and healthy.
