Placer County Health Officer & Public Health Director advises second homeowners to stay put in full-time residence

04.02.20

On Wednesday, April 2, Aimee Sisson, MD, MPH Health Officer and Public Health Director for Placer County, distributed a letter to second homeowners in North Lake Tahoe to reiterate the Shelter in Place directive.

"Wherever you reside, leaving your home for any non-essential purpose is prohibited, and could contribute to the spread of illness that may overwhelm local health systems. Further, our local stores are struggling to keep stocked on basic needs and produce. Our pharmacies are also at risk of being overwhelmed. Keep in mind what some may anticipate would be a short trip to Tahoe could turn into a longer trip due to weather, further stretching local resources."
