Dear Dana Point Harbor Guests,
Governor Newsom and the State Public Health Officer have issued Executive Order N-33-20 requiring all Californians to stay home except as needed to maintain operations in 16 infrastructure sectors. This supersedes all existing local city and county orders that are less restrictive.

In alignment with these guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19, DPHP will close certain areas of Dana Point Harbor beginning Wednesday, March 25. We are committed to the health and safety or our community and it is imperative that we follow the Governor’s stay-at-home, social distancing directive.
