As Bishop, California cautiously begins to reopen for non-essential travel, we know our local hospitality industry looks forward to welcoming patrons back into their hotels, restaurants, shops, and other local establishments. Fishing and Lodging are now open in Inyo County. Select Campgrounds are open, please check individual campsites for rules, regulations and reservations.
PLEASE HELP! We’ve worked so hard to get our businesses open. Now we need your help to stay open! Please wear a face mask or protective face covering when out in public.
Inyo County health officials have put in place a mask order. That means face coverings are required in all businesses and enclosed public spaces where social distancing (six feet apart) can’t be maintained.
