What You Need to Know About COVID-19 and the North Lake Tahoe Travel Industry
As industries around the world prepare for economic impacts as a result of COVID-19, local businesses in North Lake Tahoe will undoubtedly be affected. We have already seen a number of marquee events cancel based on recommendations from public health and government agencies. In light of this, the destination continues to welcome visitors who can enjoy the multitude of outdoor options available while also adhering to social distancing guidance. We are collectively urging a fact-base response to COVID-19 and following the lead of our industry partners. The North Lake Tahoe business community continues to enforce health protocols outlined by the CDC, who has repeatedly stated that the health risk for a majority of people in the United States is thought to be low.
Visitors and residents should follow the same common-sense precautions – frequent hand washing, avoidance of sick people, social distancing, etc. – that they would with the traditional flu. Older adults and people with chronic health conditions or compromised immune systems should follow detailed CDPH recommendations to protect themselves.
The North Lake Tahoe Destination Management Organization (NLTRA + IVCBVB) will host a stakeholder call on Tuesday, March 17 at 3:30pm, to discuss tourism industry updates and best practices for local businesses amid the COVID-19 outbreak. The call will feature state, county and local experts who will provide information to help our local industry navigate this increasingly complex issue. Please confirm your interest to receive additional call details.
