Effective Friday, Dec. 18, Napa County will be under the State of California’s “Stay-Home Order” that will impact travel to Calistoga.  This new order, which prohibits all non-essential travel in the Bay Area region, is an added precaution to help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

The order requires all sectors other than retail and essential operations to be closed. The new restrictions will remain in place at least until Friday, Jan. 9. 2021, although possibly longer depending on hospital capacity in the entire Bay Area.

Changes from this order include:

  • Hotels and Lodging – Only allowed to host essential travelers at this time. 
  • Restaurants – Open for take out or delivery only.
  • Wineries – Closed to winetasting, although they can remain open for retail sales. 
  • Retail – Open to shoppers at 20% capacity, or 35% at stand-alone grocery stores.
  • Bars and breweries – Closed for the duration of the order.  
  • Outdoor Recreational Facilities – Only allowed to operate outdoors to facilitate physically distanced health and wellness through outdoor exercise without food, drink or alcohol sales. 
  • Camping – Overnight campgrounds are not open at this time.
  • Additionally – Personal care services, spas, museums, movie theaters and family entertainment centers are closed.
