District Response to COVID-19
The North Tahoe Public Utility District (NTPUD) continues to track the ever-changing circumstances of the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. On Tuesday, May 12, 2020, Placer County was granted a variance to advance through Stage 2 of California’s reopening road map and the District has been preparing for reopening facilities that are permitted per the reopening guidelines, if they can be opened safely for the public and District employees.
In response to this Directive, the Tahoe Vista Recreation Area Boat Launch will open on Friday, May 22, 2020, for Tahoe Only or Tahoe In and Out Boats with intact aquatic invasive species (AIS) seals from 2019. Please visit the boat launch page on the northtahoeparks.com website for more details.
The gate at the North Tahoe Regional Park will be open prior to the Memorial Day weekend with the hiking/biking trails, disc golf course, restrooms, and tennis courts open to the public with a reminder to follow the current State of California physical distancing and group play restrictions. The playground, ballfields, picnic areas, Ramada, and Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park remain closed.
