A Note about Face Coverings & Vaccination Requirements

Palm Springs Face Covering Indoors

Face coverings are no longer required to be worn outdoors at non-ticketed large events in the City of Palm Springs, which includes all the outdoor festival and concert space of Palm Springs Pride. However, the City of Palm Springs still requires proof of vaccination (or negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours) for patrons dining indoors at restaurants and bars, and face coverings are required within businesses. So in short, keep your mask and vax handy! More info
