Travel Advisory

Health Safety

During this unprecedented time, impacts on travel due to the coronavirus pandemic continue to evolve. The southern California region, including Pasadena, is currently operating under a Regional Stay at Home order from the State of California and travel is banned statewide.

Hotels and lodging are open for operation for critical infrastructure support including essential workers, COVID-19 mitigation, containment and treatment measures. Hotels and lodging cannot accept or honor out-of-state reservations for non-essential travel, unless the reservation is for at least the minimum time period required for quarantine (14 days) and the persons identified in the reservation will quarantine in the hotel or lodging entity until after that time period has expired. We recommend verifying reservations directly with your hotel prior to arrival.

Restaurants are currently open for takeout and delivery only. Retail shops are currently open at 20% capacity. Botanical gardens, parks and trails are open with restrictions including social distancing measures. Advance reservations are required. Currently all public and private gatherings of individuals from different households are not allowed. Face coverings are required in public and social distancing is an important step in slowing the spread.

For more details, continue reading below or review the latest news and the latest health order from the City of Pasadena.

We look forward to welcoming you back when the time is right.
