Visitor Information and SLO CAL’s Response to Coronavirus

Visit SLO CAL is closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 throughout our own communities, as well as statewide, nationally and globally. We are working very closely with our communities, committees and chambers of commerce to coordinate the best practices and procedures to keep our area safe and healthy. We are also communicating with local, state and national officials to remain up-to-date about the current situation happening around the world.

While SLO CAL offers wide open spaces to visitors and residents alike, the SLO CAL experience is ever-changing. If you plan on supporting local businesses, we recommend calling ahead of time to see how they have adjusted to the climate.

Visit SLO CAL will continue to keep an eye on any updates about COVID-19 and relay all information as it becomes available. While the U.S. is facing a low immediate risk, Visit SLO CAL is dedicated to the health and safety of all residents and visitors.
