Sonoma County Travel Update for COVID-19
This page is to inform you of updates regarding Sonoma County Travel related to COVID-19. We hope it assists you in vacation planning for The Sea Ranch and other locations in Sonoma County.
GET READY – GET SET…GO!!
Sonoma County leisure tourism resumed on June 19, 2020.
And when you go be sure to pack your mask (including a spare for just in case!). Then remember to wear your mask, plus maintain 6 feet spacing between you and others. By following these protocols without a doubt the state will safely reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s important to note Sonoma County always required the use of a mask while in public spaces.
It must be remembered, the following plans will only move forward so long as we don’t see several “red flags.” Therefore, concern remains for the worsening of multiple metrics of the re-opening criteria. You can keep track of our current status with the “Roadmap to Reopening” dashboard on the SoCoEmergency site.
Our public health team is continually assessing the data and expects to make the final, formal call on Phase III reopenings next week.
Phase Three Reopening Has Begun for Vacation Rentals
Notably, with California and Sonoma County moving into Phase III allows the reopening of Short Term Rentals and tourist travel.
Important to note that Sea Ranch Abalone Bay will remain close due to its construction plans.
Phase Three Activities and Venues
Specifically, these Phase Three Activities and Venues will reopen:
- Campgrounds, RV Parks, and Outdoor Recreation
- Short Term Rentals and another lodging
- Non-spectator Professional sports
- Cardrooms, Satellite Wagering Facilities, and Racetracks
- Museums, Galleries, Zoos and Aquariums

- Music, Film and Television Production
- Restaurants, Bars, and Wineries- Beginning June 12, 2020, the State will now be allowing tasting rooms, breweries, distilleries, and wineries to operate for alcohol-only service,
- Family Entertainment
Vacation Planning- At Your Own Risk
While this Amendment, Order, or the State Order, allows these venues and locations, continue to practice COVID-19 protocols. It’s important that you assure your vacation plans and activities do present a risk. Community members should conduct their own risk-based assessment of what activities are appropriate, especially those who have underlying medical conditions, people age 65 or older, or who are otherwise vulnerable (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/index.html).
