Incline Village leaders vigorously urge visitors to stop traveling to area during COVID-19 pandemic
Incline Village, Nev. (April 11, 2020) -- The Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID) is once again asking anyone who is considering traveling to the Incline Village or Crystal Bay area to reschedule their visit. Furthermore, second-home owners are encouraged to remain at their primary residence until the COVID-19 pandemic has diminished. As a small and remote mountain-lake community, the healthcare, support services, and facilities lack the capacity and resources to handle an outbreak of COVID-19.
“Unfortunately, even after we asked visitors to reschedule their trips until COVID-19 is controlled, we have continued to experience an influx of people flocking to the area,” said Indra Winquest, IVGID interim general manager. “We are doing everything we can to protect our community, including closing all recreation and community service facilities, but need visitors and second-home owners to temporarily stay home in order to prevent a medical crisis.”
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, so have restrictions on activities throughout Nevada. Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak mandated the closure of most businesses and recreational areas, and prohibited group gatherings. IVGID closed or implemented use-restrictions of its beaches, ski resort, golf courses, fields, indoor and outdoor facilities, and community services. Most recently, the Washoe County Health District ordered short-term property renters to remain in self-quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival.
“Pursuant to the order of our Governor to shelter in place and our County District Health officer that you are required to self-quarantine for 14 days when arriving here from out-of-state, we are asking all visitors to stay home and not risk bringing the virus to our mountain towns,” added Washoe County Commissioner Marsha Berkbigler. “Washoe County is at the beginning of the virus serge and our small hospital in Incline is not big enough to treat a large number of patients. Please stay home until we get the all clear from our State and Country leaders.”
Truckee, a neighboring town in Nevada County, California, has reported 10 times more positive COVID-19 cases per capita than the rest of California. The Nevada County Supervisor has asked owners of second homes in the area to stay at their primary residence during California Governor Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order. Nevada County officials have warned the health care system may become overwhelmed in coming weeks.
IVGID will continue to share updates as the situation evolves on its social media pages and website at www.yourtahoeplace.com.
More advice from community leaders:
“I understand that staying home is becoming increasingly difficult for many people in our community and that many people want to experience the beauty of Incline Village as an escape. However, this is not the time to pull back from staying home – there are signs that staying home is working and so we must keep at it. We need to stay in our homes and for those who don’t live permanently in Incline Village, please don’t visit at this time. I firmly believe the time will come again to experience the scenery in Incline Village and I look forward to that time – but not a moment before it is safe to do so.”
- Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam
“We are working with our local, state and federal stakeholders including the U.S. Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), local fire and EMS agencies, hospitals and the Washoe County Health District (WCHD) to ensure our personnel are properly equipped and response ready with regards to COVID-19 patients. Help us help you and adhere to the CDC and WCHD recommendations: stay at home, wash your hands, and if you must go out for essentials, wear a protective mask and adhere to the 6 foot social distancing guideline.”
- Ryan Sommers, North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District Fire Chief.

Incline Village Recreation Center offers online wellness programming
The Look Up series of online programs is designed to keep the community connected during the COVID-19 crisis.
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (April 7, 2020) – As the world adjusts to the current reality of social distancing and temporary closures of important public spaces and community events, the staff at the Incline Village Recreation Center have put together a new series of “Look Up” remote wellness and recreation programming designed to foster healthy lifestyles and community connections during the COVID-19 crisis.
The free online content series offers fitness classes, nutrition lectures, personal training tips, children’s programs, golf tips and community messaging for Recreation Center members, local residents and the extended Incline Village/Crystal Bay community.
“Our goal with the Look Up programming is to promote a holistic approach to wellness during these unprecedented times,” said Shelia Leijon, Fitness, Health and Wellness Manager at the Incline Village Recreation Center. “The Rec. Center has long been referred to as the heart of our community because of all the great community classes and programming we provide; so we felt a real urgency to maintain that role, even if we have to switch to an online model for delivering our programming.”
The Look Up remote wellness and recreation programming includes a library of prerecorded videos that community members can view at their leisure, as well as a schedule of live-streamed programming where participants can interact with the presenters.

“We have been talking about virtual programming for some time and with the recent closure of the Rec Center we decided to make it happen,” said Kerrie Tonking, Operations Coordinator at the Incline Village Recreation Center. “We are disappointed that we are unable to interact with our community face-to-face, but proud to provide quality programming that our community and members can access from home. It’s going well so far, and we hope to continue virtual offerings even after our venues reopen.”
