Anxious to get away for Memorial Day weekend? A trip to South Lake Tahoe could get you a $1,000 fine.
Visitors are not allowed.
The El Dorado County Public Health Office issued an ordinance weeks ago prohibiting visitors in an effort to help enforce shelter-in-place orders.
If violated, any visitors or lodging facilities will face a $1,000.
"It will effectively fine guests or property rental owners who offer lodging and actually have people stay," said Jerry Bindel, the general manager of Forest Suite Resorts.
According to South Lake Tahoe police, four fines have been issued to hotels and short-term rental properties for violating this order.
Police will be patrolling during Memorial Day weekend.
