With recent news of the new virus strain, Covid-19, introduced to the United States of America, traveling in and out of the country has become a hot topic. As a resource for Lake Tahoe vacation home bookings, the health and safety of our visitors are incredibly important. At this time, we are staying tuned for reports from the local, regional and national health departments and hospitals so that when people calling to book a Lake Tahoe vacation home have questions, we can answer according to our local, updated knowledge. At this time, there are no reported cases of Covid-19 in our area and experts are predicting that the risk of transmission for the general public remains low. In fact, the local health departments are recommending the usual seasonal flu precautions. These include, but are not limited to….
- Washing your hands often for 20 seconds with soap and water.
- 60%-95% alcohol based hand sanitizer in addition to already clean hands is another good practice if you need things to be “extra clean”.
- Cleaning hands is important before eating, after going to the bathroom, blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing.
- Always cover your cough or sneeze, preferably with a tissue that you can dispose of immediately afterwards. Avoid touching face, specifically nose, eyes and mouth.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick and stay home from work or going out in public if you feel sick.
- Stay up to date on travel advisories from the CDC and the U.S. State Department.
- Always consult your doctor before traveling if your immune system is compromised or you have any questions at all.
As a locally owned and operated Lake Tahoe vacation home company, we send cleaners in to every property after someone has checked out and they do a deep clean of the entire property from cleaning surfaces to washing textiles. If there is ever an issue at check in you are encouraged to contact us. In the meantime, for more information on the local area, below are some great numbers to keep for your travels to the area.
