(PLACERVILLE, CA) – Like it did when letting the County-specific Stay At Home order expire in April, El Dorado County today rescinded its nonessential travel ban into the Lake Tahoe Basin.

“Because the State ban on nonessential travel supersedes the County’s, there is no material change in what people should do in regards to visiting Lake Tahoe,” said Public Health Officer, Dr. Nancy Williams. “I cannot emphasize this enough: people should not come to Lake Tahoe unless they have an essential purpose for doing so.”
