A Message From The City Manager 

August 10, 2020 

Here in Fort Bragg, visitors are an important and valued part of our community. We are happy to welcome back visitors who love our cherished community and embrace the guidelines necessary to protect us all during the COVID-19 pandemic. Before embarking on your journey, we ask you to join us in embracing the mindset of a responsible visitor. 

In Preparation: 

Call Ahead – Many hotels, eateries and activities have special restrictions. Please do not arrive without reservations and confirmed accommodations. 

Bring Masks – Face coverings are required indoors and other public spaces. Make sure everyone in your group has at least one mask when they arrive. 

Also Bring – Hand sanitizer, gloves, a thermometer and cleaning supplies could come in handy. But also bring a little extra patience as we do our best to adjust. 

Be Well – Most importantly, please do not travel if you are sick. Fort Bragg has a limited healthcare system and businesses are relaxing cancellation policies in case of illness. 

While Here: 

Mask Up – Face coverings are required by state and local law while out in public and especially indoors. You can read the specific regulations from Mendocino County here. Like many other California communities, the City of Fort Bragg and Mendocino County have additional fines that may apply to individuals who do not comply with the mask requirements. 

Social Distancing – Please maintain the required six feet of physical distance from others and cover coughs and sneezes into your elbow or tissue. 

Enjoy Safely – Many businesses have made accommodations for things like outdoor dining, but also consider take-out or curbsides services from all of our merchants. 

Be Considerate – Remember that we’re all in this together, and while the current situation can be challenging, our goal is to come together as a community so we can all get back to normal as soon as possible. 


Thank you in advance for visiting our beloved city and for doing your part to keep everyone in Fort Bragg safe and comfortable. 

Sincerely, Tabatha Miller 

City Manager, Fort Bragg, CA
