TRUCKEE, Calif. (KRON) – Officials say they have seen an increase of Bay Area residents flocking to the Truckee area and renting short-term properties to escape the coronavirus pandemic.

Truckee Mayor joins the KRON4 Morning News to talk about why this is a bad idea, especially since the medical system there can not support a large outbreak.

Also, it’s in violation of stay-at-home orders issued statewide.

Authorities in the Tahoe area are also issuing citations and fining people violating the orders.
