A Message On Water Conservation 

From The Students at Fort Bragg’s Dana Gray Elementary

When you visit Fort Bragg, please be mindful that we are facing a severe water shortage, with a Stage 1 Water Alert declared on July 26, 2022. Over the last few years, the City’s water sources have dropped lower than has seen in more than 40 years. Please assist us with conserving water by:

  • Limiting or taking shorter showers
  • Asking that towels and sheets in hotels not be changed every day
  • Limiting the dishes and linens that need to be washed in restaurants
  • Shutting off the water while brushing your teeth or washing your hands
  • Making certain that all faucets, hoses, and water fountains are shut tight

Thank you in advance for embracing the mindset of a responsible and sustainable visitor. 

As you know, the Pandemic has interrupted how, when and where we travel. As our counties and states continue to revise restrictions, we are happy to welcome visitors. However, before you travel, we ask that you check with the State’s COVID-19 website to ensure that your destination can accommodate your visit. Additionally, please check the Mendocino County COVID-19 website

In Preparation:

  • Stay Up To Date On Vaccinations – Getting the most recent vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others
  • Check the CDC COVID-19 County Check for Mendocino County for recommended prevention steps. 
  • Be Flexible – The regulations on leisure travel may change as the number of COVID-19 cases rise and fall.
  • Bring Masks – Face coverings may be required in certain spaces. Make sure everyone in your group has at least one mask when they arrive.
  • Be Well – 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 When Asked – Acceptable masks include cloth with at least two layers of woven cloth, a hospital-grade mask or N95 mask.
  • Social Distancing – Please be consolidate of those who prefer to maintain distance and cover coughs and sneezes into your elbow or tissue.
  • 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.
