Coronado recognizes that renters from all over the country enjoy our island during the summer. But, during this time of coronavirus, it can be difficult for visitors to know what the rules and expectations are, particularly as each state has its own mandates. Know that Coronado has your safety in mind and maintains a helpful website on guidelines and Covid 19 information, updated daily.
To Mask or Not to Mask:
Perhaps the most visible and asked-about concern is masking. Facial coverings are mandatory in public settings for everyone when six feet of space cannot be maintained, and applies to anyone who is not a family member. Children under the age of two are exempt from wearing masks.
Masks are also required in restaurants when you are not seated and eating. Additionally, they are required to wear when waiting in lines to enter any public or commercial establishment, at the bus stop, and when seeking healthcare.
Maintaining Social Distance:
Avoid crowds when possible, including at the beach. Try going at less popular times, or finding a spot away from large groups.
Which restaurants are open? Currently, Coronado has 21 restaurants open for business. You can find them quickly on the City’s webpage.
Since all dining is limited to outside reservations, it’s a good idea to make reservations. Be sure to bring a sweater or light jacket, as that lovely sea breeze can be a bit chilly in the evening.
Beaches are open daily from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Masks are required when a social distance of six feet cannot be maintained, so don’t forget to bring them.
The golf course, parks, tennis courts, and boat ramps are also open, with most requiring reservations, and all requiring masking and social distancing. See the City website for more information, including hours of operation and phone numbers.
Just to Be on the Safe Side:
While we may not like to think about it, accidents occasionally happen on vacation (watch out for those stingrays!). If you find yourself needing emergency medical services, remember to let first responders know immediately if you or anyone you’re staying with has a fever or other virus symptoms.
Taking Care of Your Rental Abode:
Be a good, conscientious renter and maintain a clean environment to protect the housekeepers and others who come into the residence after you’ve left.
If you use sanitary cloths, remember not to flush them down the toilet, as they won’t disintegrate like toilet paper. You’ll be saving the homeowner or hotel from a huge plumbing bill, and for that, they’ll be grateful.
If you have friends over, socialize outside and maintain six feet of separation to avoid transmission from anyone who may have the virus, including those who may be asymptomatic.
Make the most of your stay and ensure you bring home the happiest of memories by following the City’s mandates and staying safe. That way, we’ll be sure to see you again.
