Governor's Order Clarified; Lodging Facilities and Vacation Rentals May Not Operate in Big Bear Lake
Governor Newsom issued a state-wide “shelter in place” order late on March 19, with several exceptions, and has directed everyone to remain at home in an effort to discourage further community transmission of COVID-19. The City of Big Bear Lake has been diligently implementing these restrictions and those established by County public health officials since the COVID-19 event began, and is implementing additional restrictions as they are announced and/or clarified.
Earlier this morning, the City received additional clarification regarding lodging facilities and vacation rentals. Unless these facilities are housing critical infrastructure workers or specifically designated by the State or County to house confirmed COVID-19 patients (currently not the case in Big Bear Lake and highly unlikely in the future), lodging establishments and vacation rentals may not operate. Current bookings for the next several weeks should be canceled, no new arrivals should be processed, and no new reservations should be accepted for the short-term until after the COVID-19 event has ended and these restrictions have been lifted.
Unfortunately, we will be canceling all bookings that are arriving in the next several weeks and giving rainchecks and blocking all units until April 20, 2020.
We're wishing all of you well. Stay Safe. Hopefully, this will be over soon.
From The Big Bear Cool Cabins Family, we send our love.
