Beginning Monday, Feb. 28, the City of Palm Springs will no longer require masks
indoors or proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 tests in bars and restaurants,
aligning its pandemic safety requirements with the state’s policies and guidance. Please
note that all federal and state requirements must still be followed.

“I am pleased to report that our COVID-19 case rate in Palm Springs is now lower than
the county and state average,” said City Manager Justin Clifton, who noted that Palm
Springs is now averaging just nine new cases per day and hospitalizations have
significantly decreased over the past consecutive weeks.

“Due to this recent data, case numbers in Palm Springs are expected to decrease even
more in the coming week — and we feel confident that local restrictions can now be
lifted,” said Clifton.

Masks continue to be required indoors at City Hall and in all other City facilities, until
Cal/OSHA requires otherwise.

Hours of operation are 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday – Thursday.
