What you need to know about COVID-19 in Yosemite Mariposa County.

Hello from the Yosemite Mariposa County Tourism Bureau

Like most of you, we’re doing our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by staying at home, washing our hands and limiting contact with others. However, we’re still dreaming of the time when we can travel and explore this great region … just like you. Until that day, we ask you to do all you can to keep everyone around you safe.

We look forward to having you visit Yosemite Mariposa County when the time is right. Our economy is based on wonderful people like you visiting our area, eating in our great restaurants, taking tours with our local experts and staying in our hotels, cabins, and bed and breakfasts. We hope you’ll keep us in mind as you dream about the future. We’ll be here to welcome you once it’s safe to do so.

For the time being, if you have an upcoming trip planned to Yosemite Mariposa County, please consider postponing your reservations with hotels, tour guides, or any one of the activities offered, instead of canceling altogether. Rescheduling could help keep a small business open and optimistic through this difficult time.

Stay well. We’re in this together!

The Yosemite Mariposa County Tourism Bureau is here to help. See the links below for information on the area and please feel free to email us with any questions at
