COVID-19 Information and Updates


CDC Face Covering Guidelines

Together with the City of Twentynine Palms, Visit 29 Palms continues to closely monitor the latest developments and guidance provided by health officials during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Twentynine Palms is following the guidance of the San Bernardino County Health Department, the California Department of Public Health, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. As hospitality businesses in Twentynine Palms reopen and we look forward to welcoming visitors back to our desert community, we urge everyone to follow best practices and remain diligent in doing your part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

To find a detailed snapshot of the virus’s impact to Twentynine Palms and across San Bernardino County, please visit the County’s COVID-19 dashboard, either with the desktop view or mobile view. Dashboard information includes the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths, testing locations and a “hospital census” showing local rates of hospital and ICU admissions.

As of June 18, 2020, public health officials now require Californians to wear cloth face coverings or masks in all common and public indoor spaces and outdoors when physical distancing is not possible. Face coverings and masks help reduce the spread of coronavirus, especially when combined with physical distancing and frequent hand washing.
