Douglas County Community Development Distributes Guidelines to Owners/Managers of Vacation Home/Short-term Rentals to Facilitate the State of Nevada’s Response to Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Minden, Nevada- Consistent with directives issued by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, and the guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control, Douglas County is urging travelers and short-term rental owners/managers, to take this threat to our community seriously, act responsibly and refrain from renting vacation home properties to non-essential travelers at this time. In a memo addressed to “Property Owners, Permittees and Property Managers of Vacation Home/Short-term Rentals,” Douglas County advised short-term rentals should be limited to people working or visiting for essential healthcare and infrastructure operations only.

“We are all worried about the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) within in our State, local Community and especially our neighborhoods. Public parks and Tahoe beaches on the Nevada side have been closed and limited to resident access only. Now is not the time for visitors or Nevada residents to flock to public spaces” said Director of Community Development, Tom Dallaire. “The immediate containment of the spread of COVID-19 is vital to protect the health and welfare of Douglas County residents and all residents of the State of Nevada. We are asking everyone to please abide by Governor Sisolak’s guidance so we can all survive this COVID0-19 crisis.”

The memo further advises property owners and managers of a number of applicable guidelines, declarations and advisories issued by the State and Federal Government to help curb the transmission of COVID-19 in Douglas County. A copy of the memo can be found here.
