Shared spaces where face coverings must be worn include the following:

  • Indoor public spaces and common areas
  • Lobbies
  • Food & Beverage outlets, including pool bars, Marketplaces, and other similar venues

Please Note:  The above requirements are in addition to any applicable face covering requirements mandated by governmental authorities in the jurisdictions where our resorts are located.


The following exceptions apply to the above face covering requirements while on property, but please note that any more stringent requirements mandated by governmental authorities in jurisdictions where our resorts are located will still apply:

  • Individuals younger than 2 years old
  • Individuals with a health or medical condition that prevents them from wearing a face covering
  • Individuals who are actively communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication

  • Individuals who are exercising outdoors, including running, biking, and swimming and who are able to socially distance while doing so

Important Alerts

Official Information

Please visit the official California Department of Public Health website for information on the recently updated Travel Advisory for the State of California, which provides, among other things, that Californians should avoid non-essential travel outside of California, to other states or countries, and strongly discourages non-essential travelers from other states and countries, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status, from entering California, and provides that they should adhere to the quarantine procedures in the Travel Advisory, including testing and self-quarantining requirements. NOTE:  Non-essential travel includes travel that is considered tourism or that is recreational in nature. Further, the advisory provides that all persons arriving in or returning to the State of California from other states or countries should follow CDC travel guidance, get tested with a viral test 1-3 days before travel and any travelers who test positive or develop symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate and follow public health recommendations.
