COVID-19 Travel Information & Resources for visiting San Luis Obispo
current weather: ° F

Our local businesses and community are #SLOready to greet you safely. With numerous steps taken to ensure the health and well-being of our residents and visitors, the City of San Luis Obispo invites you to explore and enjoy our warm, friendly atmosphere. As State orders dictate, wearing a facial covering is a must both indoors and outdoors. So grab a trendy,  handmade mask from one of our local shops, follow proper safety precautions– like social distancing and frequent handwashing- and soak in all that SLO has to offer. 

Small businesses from restaurants to retail make up the heartbeat of San Luis Obispo, and your support matters! Shopping small creates a huge difference; for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 68 cents stay in the local community. Keep SLO vibrant and thriving by shopping online, ordering take-out or visiting open businesses around town. We are #SLOready to see you!

Dine, shop and explore responsibly

Your actions save lives. Preventing the spread of COVID-19 is a collective effort for the community.

Keep up the good work and stay updated on state and county regulations.
