COVID-19 Information & Updates

As of June 15, 2021, the State of California has fully reopened its economy and lifted nearly all the COVID-19 related restrictions that have been in place over the past year. Thanks to the hard work and diligent efforts by Californians over the last year, our state’s COVID-19 transmission rate is among the lowest in the United States, and over 40 million vaccines have been administered.

Together with the City of Twentynine Palms, Visit 29 Palms will continue to closely monitor the latest developments and guidance provided by the California Department of Public Health as well as the San Bernardino County Health Department. As of June 15, 2021, restrictions such as physical distancing, capacity limits on businesses have been lifted, and the State of California has moved beyond its Blueprint for a Safe Economy County tier system.

California’s Department of Public Health has updated statewide masking guidance to match the CDC’s guidance, lifting California’s mask requirements for vaccinated individuals starting on June 15. Vaccinated people are able to come together without masks in most circumstances.

People who are unvaccinated must continue to wear a mask indoors in public settings to protect themselves and others. Also, there are some settings where masking is still required for everyone, such as public transit, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and indoors in K-12 schools, childcare, and other youth settings.

For detailed COVID-19 related information, including vaccine appointments and availability, COVID testing sites and resources, please visit San Bernardino County’s website www.sbcovid19.com, or call the County’s COVID hotline Monday through Friday between 9:00am and 5:00pm at (909)387-3911.
