Updated 12/17/2021

We encourage responsible travel for the health and safety of your family and our community. Many businesses are continuously working to ensure their business is as safe as possible.

As you prepare for your trip…

There are a few things to note to ensure your stay is as safe as possible. Please stay-up-to-date with the information below:

Face Coverings – On December 13, 2021, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) updated their Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings, requiring universal masking indoors, irrespective of vaccine status, statewide from December 15, 2021 to January 15, 2021.

This order will remain in effect until specific requirements are met or until it is extended, rescinded, superseded or amended by the Health Officer. Learn more CLICK HERE.

COVID-19 Prevention Plans – Businesses must establish, implement and enforce a COVID-19 prevention plan. Additionally, the City of Camarillo put together the “Shop Safe Camarillo” program to offer the necessary information and resources to businesses during this reopening process.

California Responsible Travel Code

California is a place of wide-open spaces that champions open-mindedness and celebrates diversity. Californians respect our friends and neighbors and their health and safety. We respect the environment, local culture and all the different kinds of people who visit our state. Respect is the key to keeping each other safe and all of California’s precious and fragile beauty protected, today and tomorrow.

Feel free to traipse, travel and follow your joy in California. Please follow this California Responsible Travel Code while doing so.

Roam Responsibly.  I will explore California thoughtfully and responsibly, maintaining the utmost respect for everyone and everything I encounter.

Educate Myself.  I will do my research before traveling across the state, familiarizing myself with local regulations and community concerns, which may have changed over time. This is especially important in rural communities with limited healthcare resources.

Safety First. I will follow public health directives from government officials, including physical distancing measures. I will take all necessary steps to minimize health risks to myself and others and stay home if I’m sick.

Preserve California.  I will protect and nurture the Golden State’s pristine outdoor spaces and cultural icons, by maintaining a light footprint at every turn and paying special attention to delicate ecosystems.

Embrace Community.  I will support local businesses and do my part to ensure the long-term prosperity of the places I visit.

Celebrate Culture.  I will immerse myself in California’s diverse local cultures and embrace the traditions and practices I encounter.

Teach Others. I will lead by example and share these practices with fellow travelers, acknowledging that we all share the responsibility to protect California.
