Dear Carmel Residents and Visitors:
During this time, our top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our community. Masks are required when out in public, and social distancing is strongly encouraged. Most retail businesses have re-opened with modifications. Restaurants are open for outdoor dining, takeout or delivery services with safety protocols in place, and require guests to wear masks upon entering and while being seated. Currently, INDOOR dining has been suspended in Monterey County until at least July 22. Reservations are recommended for outdoor dining as space is limited. See the list of Carmel-by-the-Sea restaurants offering outdoor dining/take out here. See the list here of our surrounding area member restaurants & local tasting rooms. Currently, INDOOR wine tasting has been suspended as well, but most tasting rooms have outdoor tasting and still offer curbside pickup. Bars, Gyms, Fitness Centers, Places of Worship, Offices for Non-Critical Services, Personal Care Services, Hair Salons, Barbershops, Movie Theaters, Family Entertainment Centers, Zoos, Museums, Cardrooms and Indoor Malls are all required to be closed until at least July 22.
Carmel Beach is currently open for recreational purposes.
Our Chamber Office is closed until at least July 22, or by appointment only. Our Visitor Center is open Thursday - Sunday (Noon-4pm) through the end of July. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you soon!
