Top 5 Ways to Practice Social Distancing in North Lake Tahoe
The information in this blog is from Jan. 14, 2021. Please keep in mind that state and health officials can change COVID-19-related requirements and orders at any time. Please check North Lake Tahoe’s COVID-19 Update for the latest information.
1. Wear a Mask
The No. 1 way we can all help slow the spread of COVID-19 is to wear a mask! Face coverings are now readily available online and in stores, so be sure to add a few masks to your packing list. Local businesses are under a widespread mask requirement, meaning visitors are required to wear a mask while on the premises. View the Mask Up Tahoe campaign to see why our community takes mask-wearing seriously!
2. Make It a Road Trip
Limiting your exposure to others is another great way to slow the spread of COVID-19. When it comes to travel, a road trip is the best option! Luckily, North Lake Tahoe is within driving distance from some of California’s major cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles. During your drive, catch up on podcasts or listen to your favorite music without interruptions. Plus, you don’t have to deal with the stress of airports!
3. Visit Ski Resorts
No trip to North Lake Tahoe in the winter would be complete without a skiing or snowboarding adventure! Our area’s ski resorts are open for the 2020/21 season with special requirements. These include limited guest capacity, mask requirements, reservations required for lift tickets, and no indoor dining on the mountain. Please check each individual resort’s website for the latest information!
4. Dine Outdoors
Right now, restaurants and breweries in North Lake Tahoe are available for outdoor dining and takeout only. Those who choose to dine outdoors can enjoy more space, as establishments have removed some tables to meet social distancing requirements. We encourage everyone to tip, even on takeout orders during this time, as the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the food and beverage industry especially hard!
