As of June 15, 2021, California has officially reopened for business and moved beyond the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy.  More information and full details of what is open can be found here HERE.

Restrictions that ended on June 15 include:

  • Physical Distancing
  • Capacity Limits on Businesses
  • County Tier System

This means that all industry and business sectors may return to normal operations with no capacity limits or physical distancing requirements, with limited exceptions for “mega” events (over 10,000 people outdoors or 5,000 outdoors).

The CDC has revised its masking guidelines to allow fully vaccinated people to go without face coverings in nearly all scenarios, except for in medical settings or on public transportation, subject to state and local regulations. Unvaccinated people are still urged to wear masks.

Currently, face coverings in California are no longer required outdoors except at crowded events and for unvaccinated people when physical distancing cannot be maintained. Fully vaccinated people in California still need to wear a mask indoors unless meeting with other vaccinated people.

Placer County is open to welcome residents and visitors to explore our vast offerings. Please keep in mind to always Travel Responsibly by respecting our local environment, including making sure to leave no trace by packing out what you brought in along our numerous trails and waterways.

The California Welcome Center, Auburn is open to assist visitors. The Welcome Center, at 1103 High Street, Auburn, is open Tues-Sat, 9:30am-4:30pm. Please use the resources and links within for local information. If you have any specific travel questions, please email
