Mendocino County, in alignment with the State of California, is fully open.  All capacity restrictions for businesses have been lifted; however, the Public Health Office of Mendocino County has implemented a new mask mandate stating that anyone going inside a public place must wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status.  Masks are still required for unvaccinated individuals when outdoors if a person is within six (6) feet of others.

The new County health order is effective September 19, 2021, and includes new signage specific to restaurants.

Please keep in mind that some businesses within Mendocino County may still require additional policies in a continued effort to keep everyone safe and healthy while in Mendocino County.

Please review the most recent Health Recommendation here, and the most recent Face Covering Order, effective December 23, 2021 here.
