Novel Coronavirus Preparedness and Response

The Marina del Rey Convention and Visitors Bureau is working with Los Angeles County and our local and state tourism partners to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-2019) outbreak. We will continue to share key updates as they are received.

As of May 27, Los Angeles County announced the reopening of beaches and bike paths along the beaches as well as churches, shopping centers and pools. To read more about what’s open in Los Angeles County, click here. In addition, the current Safer at Home order states that residents stay home as much as possible, but can leave home to visit Essential Businesses, Lower-Risk Businesses, Outdoor Recreation sites, and Outdoor Facilities. The full list of these businesses and outdoor sites is here. When outside your home, maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and wear a face covering.

During this challenging time, it is important to obtain accurate information about COVID-19 from reliable resources. Please visit the following for reliable data:


Per the LA County Health Officer, essential businesses are required to provide all of their employees whose duties require contact with other employees and/or the public with a cloth face covering to wear. Everyone is asked to wear a face covering when they are interacting with others who are not members of their household in public and private spaces. Face coverings are an additional tool that individuals should use to help slow the spread of COVID-19 but does not replace other physical distancing requirements.


How You Can Stay Healthy

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and CDC recommend personal hygiene and frequent hand washing as the best way to prevent illness. This includes:

  • Wash your hands frequently and at least for 20 seconds.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • While not protective against novel coronavirus, public health officials also recommend the influenza vaccine. It’s not too late to get an influenza vaccine, since flu season can last into spring.
