Be SAFE in Sonoma County

With the Memorial Day Weekend, we know many people will think about coming to our area.  As part of your planning, we want to ensure you and everyone around you are protected. Be aware that Sonoma County’s shelter in place order is still in effect, with strict regulations around its health order. Many of our tourism businesses – including tasting rooms – are still closed. We encourage everyone to contact local businesses directly, to determine if they are open, and the level of service they are currently offering. Sonoma County’s businesses have made a commitment to integrating protocols designed to protect you and our valued hospitality employees.  For more information about the Sonoma County Safe certification, visit the SoCoLaunch website.

For our cherished visitors.  We highly encourage you to make the Sonoma County Traveler’s SAFE Travels Promise:

S = Serious. I recognize the Coronavirus is a serious public health issue that impacts all of us, including here in Sonoma County.
A = Attentive. I will pay attention to and abide by the health regulations required of all residents and visitors in Sonoma County, even if these are not the same as the regulations in my home region.
F = Future-focused. I realize the COVID-19 pandemic will be prevalent for the foreseeable future, so I will help ensure no further spread of the virus. I will take the preparations needed to help ensure my time in the destination is safe and responsible including considering the impact my activities have on the natural and human resources.
E = Everyone. Everyone is responsible for his/her own safety and that of their families. While participating in visitor experiences, I will exercise the precautions and considerations requested by the property or business. The burden of health is on oneself.

I will do whatever I can to Be Smart. Be Safe. Be Kind. And, help myself and those around me Stay Healthy.
Remember – violations of the health order could come with serious consequences.

“If you’re a farm-to-table lovin’ foodie and oenophile (or wannabe) with a disdain for pretense and a love for all things artsy, then laid-back Sonoma County marks the spot. Less touristy, less congested, and less “pinky in the air-ish”—with more varieties of wine than their neighbor to the east— all make Sonoma the ideal place to “just chill” without sacrificing good taste or a discriminating palate.” By Jenni Keast of Southern California Life
