Safely Visiting Sacramento

As the world grapples with the Omicron variant of Covid-19, California – and Sacramento – are no exception. While California has a high vaccination rate, there is a mask mandate for indoor places through Feb. 15.

Hotels, restaurants, breweries, wineries, retail and other businesses do not have capacity limits, though many are voluntarily reducing indoor seating, asking customers to follow other social distancing procedures and taking other measures to ensure their places of business remain comfortable for patrons and employees alike. Some Sacramento-area museums and attractions are currently closed due to the Omicron variant's spread, so it is recommended to contact a business before visiting if you are unsure what is required in their establishments.

Many Sacramento hospitality businesses have taken a safety pledge to go above and beyond requirements when it comes to cleanliness and sanitation practices. For more details, visit the S.A.F.E. Sacramento Pledge page on our website.

Meetings and Events

California still has restrictions on what it terms "mega events," which are those with indoor capacities 500 or more attendees, or outdoor events with 5,000 or more attendees. For such events, attendees must confirm proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test in order to attend.
