Local status of COVID-19

Although San Luis Obispo is slowly and cautiously reopening, our town continues to follow orders placed by the County and State. California is currently under a statewide Stay-at-Home order which means travel is prohibited unless identified as essential. For now, travel is not advised, and San Luis Obispo urges visitors and locals to comply with State and County directives.

We cannot wait for the day when we can welcome you to be here, but for now take the time to vacation at home!

The Stay-at-Home executive order prohibits:

  • Group gatherings
