Update as of February 15, 2022

Petaluma and Sonoma County lifted universal mask requirements for vaccinated individuals in most indoor public settings. This aligns with similar measures in other Bay Area counties, as well as the State of California.

Indoor masking is still required by the state for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, in public transportation; health care settings; congregate settings like correctional facilities and homeless shelters; long-term facilities; and in K-12 schools and childcare settings.

Do I need to wear a mask? 
Some businesses and organizations are continuing to require that masks be worn indoors. As you enter a business, please check for signage indicating their policy.

More detailed information is available on the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

Please be aware…
The hospitality industry experienced unprecedented losses in staffing and revenue in 2020 and 2021. Everyone – from the person at the hotel’s front desk to the hostess at the brewpub – appreciate your patience if wait times are longer than expected. And making reservations whenever possible helps mitigate “crunch times” and means a more enjoyable visit.
