A stay at home order is in effect for Washington State. “To combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, Gov.

You mean a lot to us, and we wouldn’t normally say this but… Now is not the best time to travel. Practicing social distancing and limiting yourself to essential outings means rescheduling vacations and weekend adventures too. The peninsula and Pacific County will welcome visitors back once the public health has been restored.
All Hospitality Lodging, Beach Access Points Closed
“The order was effective as of 2 p.m. on Sunday. The announcement was made a few hours after 21 hotels in Long Beach announced they would voluntarily close their doors in order to discourage visitors to the peninsula while there are concerns about the spread of Covid-19.”
