As the health and safety of visitors to Panama City Beach is paramount, Visit Panama City Beach is committed to providing travelers with accurate and timely information about traveling safely. We are working closely with the Bay County Health Department, VISIT FLORIDA, Northwest Florida International Airport officials as well as the U.S. Travel Association, to gather and share the latest developments regarding the evolving Coronavirus situation. We wanted to assure you that there have been no confirmed cases in Panama City Beach.

All public beaches are currently open. UNwineD and Seabreeze events have been postponed to later dates.

According to CDC’s site, “the CDC does not currently have a COVID-19 travel health notice for Continental US,” and therefore, the CDC “does not recommend canceling or postponing travel” within the Continental US. The CDC states that “travelers should always avoid contact with sick people and clean their hands often by washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%–95% alcohol.” 

Travelers are encouraged to always exercise healthy travel habits when traveling.

Healthy Travel Practices from the CDC: 

  • Wash hands often
  • Cough into your elbow and sneeze into a tissue
  • Consult with a doctor before traveling when sick
  • Stay up-to-date on vaccinations
  • Avoid contact with people who are already sick
  • Avoid contact with animals while traveling
  • Be aware of the latest travel advisories from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. State Department
