Covid-19 Update (as at 12/04/20)

**Important information regarding the regional stay-at-home order**

Per above linked document, all counties in Southern California–including Riverside where Catalina Spa and RV Resort is located–are under the restrictions detailed in the linked document, for the next 23 days, which includes the Christmas and New Year holidays. We follow California’s public health directives and keep abreast of any changes. We can’t wait to begin organizing some activities, but all in good time…!

Meanwhile, here is a list of what is open and what is currently on hold:

  1. CatSpa’s two hot springs pools are open!

  2. The spas (hot tubs) are not open at this time, per Riverside County COVID-19 risk level guidelines.
  3. Aqua fit classes and water volleyball are on hold.
  4. Pickleball and bocce ball courts are open for casual playing (no tournament taking place). Guests are encouraged to bring their own equipment.
  5. Bocce balls as well as mini putt/shuffleboard/horseshoe/corn hole equipment are available upon request at the Welcome Center. In addition, all indoor games (cards, bingo, etc.) and live entertainment have been cancelled until further notice.

*New this year… The CatSpa Cafe is open, from Thursday to Sunday, 8 am to 3 pm at the Upper Clubhouse.

Operators Jim & Britt offer a great breakfast and lunch menu that includes all time favorites like hot dogs and burgers, but also healthy soups & salads. Come & say Hi… the Cafe is right by the Upper Clubhouse pool (a reminder to wear your mask as you go inside to order your takeout meal).

A reminder that social distancing and facial covering are required in all indoor and outdoor public settings outside of the family bubble. For sport play like pickleball, masks are required upon entering and exiting the court.
