The well-being of our community is of utmost importance and we are committed to doing everything we can to support and respond to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We will continue to update the below information to serve as a resource for our community.
The City of Pasadena, as well as the County of Los Angeles, are in Stage 2 of the recovery and have begun gradual adjustments to the Safer at Home order (More).
Physical distancing measures remain a priority. Pasadena residents are required to wear face coverings/masks when visiting businesses, when engaging in outdoor activities near other people, while riding on public transportation, and traveling through Los Angeles International Airport and Hollywood Burbank Airport. The new guidelines on face coverings exempt children under 2 and people with certain disabilities.
Some retail businesses, restaurants, botanical gardens, and recreation activities have started to reopen with restrictions. However, many tourist attractions remain closed at this time.
We will try to update our website to the best of our abilities. However, for the most up-to-date information, travelers planning a visit should reach out directly to the attractions they plan to visit. Questions about travel or accommodations postponements should be directed to the transportation companies and hotels booked by the traveler.
