Addendum 2 to Order of the Health Officer No. C20-3 (A2) Offers Further Clarifications

An urgent and important message from Lake County’s Public Health Officer, Gary Pace, MD, MPH.

Lake County, CA (March 23, 2020) – Over the weekend, Addendum 1 to Order of the Health Officer No. C20-3 (A1) was issued the public.  This Addendum kept all previous Health Officer Orders in place, but in section 5 (parts A-J), ordered a set of listed facilities and activities CLOSED and/or STOPPED.  Section 6 was added regarding lodging restrictions and exceptions.

Following release of Addendum 1 (A1) to Order of the Health Officer No. C20-3, further clarifications were made.

In Section 6, emphasis has been added, clarifying that “NO Hotel, Motel, vacation rental property, VRBO, recreational vehicle park, campground, timeshare or other similar facilities… shall rent or provide accommodations to any person until such time [Order of the Health Officer No. C20-3] is modified or rescinded,” unless one of the exceptions listed in the Order is determined applicable.

Additionally, changes were made to Section number 7, prohibiting recreational boating activity on all public waterways in the unincorporated areas and Cities within the boundaries of Lake County.  Clarifications indicate the Order, “applies to all motorized and non-motorized vessels, or any device designed or used to transport a person or persons across water.”  Additionally, language was added to specify that vessels “currently moored or docked do not need to be removed from the lake, but shall not be used for the duration of the order” (emphasis added).

Attached to this release, please find Addendum 2 to Order of the Health Officer No. C20-3 (A2), in English and in Spanish.  A Flow Chart for Lodging Businesses is likewise attached.
