As Placer County works to re-open safely, we welcome visitors back to the region and encourage you to travel responsibly for the health and safety of our residents and guests. All sectors of businesses – lodging properties, restaurants, wineries, breweries, retailers and activity providers – are following state and county guidance to re-open and operate safely.
On September 8, the State of California moved Placer County into the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy ‘red’ tier – further easing some restrictions in the county. Sectors that can open indoors with modifications include restaurants, places of worship, gyms and fitness centers, movie theaters and personal care services. The full list of sectors is available online at the Blueprint for a Safer Economy website. Full details of Placer County’s current stage can be found HERE.
Restaurants in Placer County may now operate indoors at 25% capacity – many Placer County restaurants also have patio space available and additional outdoor spaces are being added where possible. Wineries are permitted to operate outdoors only and many have space available to serve on patios and in the vineyards. In addition, breweries may remain open with the requirement of a sit-down meal purchase, and may also operate at 25% capacity indoors. Hotels and short-term rentals for tourism, campgrounds, RV parks and outdoor recreation remain open.
As you travel throughout Placer County, please travel responsibly and follow all safety guidelines. All Californians should wear face coverings in common and public indoor spaces and outdoors when distancing is not possible, as detailed in state guidance.

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. Please help us respect Placer County and all of California by following the California Responsible Travel Code from our friends at Visit California.
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.
