South Lake Tahoe, CA- The City of South Lake Tahoe sent out information to owners of VHR’s, hotels and motels today.                   

The language is below:                   

As you are probably aware, Governor Newsom issued a state-wide Stay at Home Order on March 19, 2020, which bans all non-essential travel. Over the weekend, the City received many reports of out of town visitors staying at VHRs, hotels, and motels. The City of South Lake Tahoe is asking our Vacation Home Rental permittees, hotels, and motels to cease renting to non-exempt short-term visitors until at least April 23rd (30 days). The City is also asking you to be flexible with your current reservation holders and allow them to reschedule or be reimbursed for canceled trips. The COVID-19 public health emergency requires everyone’s cooperation. The City is asking you to work with us in partnership to keep our community safe.                   

The City has also released an FAQ page that will be updated with information as it becomes available. That page is available here.
