The State of Hospitality in Modesto

The health and safety of every guest, every visitor and every worker in Modesto is the #1 Priority for the entire Hospitality Industry. At VisitModesto we support the local, state and federal directives designed to offset the health risk to our community and visitors.

The Modesto travel industry and hospitality community are focused on providing a safe environment and recognize the precautionary measures requested by Governor Newsome. Those include persons over 65 or older to stay at home, directing restaurants to restrict occupancy by half plus bars and brewpubs being asked to temporarily close. The local lodging industry has not been restricted and remains open for guests.

The standards already in place for health and safety by the lodging industry are reinforced daily. In addition, many lodging establishments provide guests with information on measures recently implemented. Any travelers who plan to visit are encouraged to call their hotel and reach out to our offices for additional restrictions or details.

Visit Modesto encourages everyone to follow common-sense precautions as you would with the flu. Those include frequent hand washing, avoidance of sick people and other recommendations from the California Department of Public Health.

We will get through this together. That doesn’t mean it will be easy. Be conscious of health and safety standards. Call us or stop by the Visitor Center to ask questions. Our mission at Visit Modesto, today and after this crisis, is to do all we can to reinforce that Modesto is a safe and welcoming place to visit.
