If you are traveling to Lake Tahoe for a getaway and have a Lake Tahoe vacation rental booked, there are some things you should know about how South Lake Tahoe is responding to Covid-19 and what the local restrictions are.
All Californians and Nevadans are required to wear mask coverings, but where are they required?
- Inside of, or in line to enter, indoor public spaces
- Ride shares and public transportation
- Common areas like elevator, stairs, parking structures, lobbies, etc.
There are exceptions though! For California, If you are enjoying outdoor recreation and able to keep 6 feet distance between you and others, you can remove the mask. You can also remove the mask while sitting down at a restaurant or bar.
For Nevada, Children under the age of 9, Individuals experiencing homelessness and anyone who cannot wear a face covering or mask due to a medical condition or disability or cannot remove a mask without assistance do not need to wear one. Nevada has added a few more exceptions than California that include individuals for whom “wearing a face covering would create a risk to the person related to their work”. Anyone who obtains a service that would require removal of the mask to access their face or nose
Currently, California has to close indoor operations for the following businesses.
- Dine-in restaurants
- Wineries and tasting rooms
- Movie theaters
- Family entertainment centers (for example bowling alleys, miniature golf, batting cages, and arcades)
- Zoos and museums
- Additionally, bars, brewpubs, breweries, and pubs must close all operations both indoor and outdoor statewide. Unless they are offering sit-down, outdoor dine-in meals. Alcohol can only be sold in the same transaction as a meal.

PLTG and Tahoe Property Services is committed to doing everything we can on our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Here is what we are doing to keep our employees, Lake Tahoe vacation rental guests, and homeowners safe:
-All cleaning crews will be using EPA approved disinfectants, including Prokure V, which is a disinfectant, sanitizer, and virucide that has been approved for and shown to be effective against coronavirus.
-Cleaning crews will be opening doors and windows throughout each clean to allow for the air flow and circulation of fresh air into the home.
-Our cleaning staff will be tackling and focusing on all highly touched surfaces as part of every departure clean. This includes things such as light switches, doorknobs & handles, tables & dining chairs, countertops, faucets & sinks, phones, TV remotes, etc.
-Cleaning crews will be emptying their vacuums at the end of every clean to avoid any cross contamination from one property to another.
-Tahoe Property Services also owns a Vapor Clean Pro6 Duo. This is a steam clean/steam vapor machine that uses a combination of heat and high-pressure to create steam, which penetrates surface pores. We will be using this machine at any property where guests have exhibited signs & symptoms of the virus and it will be used in conjunction with an EPA approved disinfectant.
