Dear Industry Partners,

California will soon be open for business.

Gov. Newsom today projected that California business restrictions from the coronavirus pandemic will end on June 15, two months after all California adults become eligible to receive a vaccination.

State health officials expect the current downward trend in hospitalizations and upward trend in vaccinations will continue in the intervening weeks to trigger the re-opening date, but reserve the right to extend it should the situation unexpectedly worsen. In effect, the tiered, county-by-county system of business restrictions will go away on June 15.

This is fantastic news for California and California’s tourism industry.
  • Capacity limits at restaurants, bars, indoor museums, ballparks, theme parks and concert venues will end, offering visitors the full gamut of attractions in our gateways and rural destinations.
  • Conventions also will be allowed, but until Oct. 1 those with 5,000 or more participants will be open only to attendees with proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test. International convention attendees will be allowed only if fully vaccinated.
  • Otherwise, the state has no plans to require proof of vaccination for other activities, but could impose testing or vaccination rules at "large-scale higher-risk events."
  • California will continue to emphasize safety, however, and the requirement to wear face coverings in public indoor spaces and in crowded outdoor situations will remain in place indefinitely.
It remains unclear when California’s cautionary travel advisory will be fully lifted, but the state intends to adhere to the CDC’s guidance greenlighting travel for vaccinated Americans.
California’s travel industry has endured economic hardship for the past 12-plus months, but has also displayed the kind of uncommon resilience we’ve come to expect.

Be well,

Survey: Two-thirds of Americans planning
to travel in 2021

A new survey commissioned by Motel 6 examines Americans’ 2021 travel plans and how they are leveraging social media inspirations.

The survey, which polled 2,000 U.S. adults, found that one in four (24 percent) respondents have been scrolling for travel inspiration this past year as an outlet for their pent-up desire to travel. More than half of these social media scrollers (57 percent) said their next trip is inspired by something they saw while scrolling.
