Resolution to combat COVID-19 enacted for IVGID beaches

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (June 25, 2020) -- The Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID) Board of Trustees voted to approve Resolution 1881, an emergency resolution to enact critical health and safety measures at the Incline Beach, Burnt Cedar Beach, Ski Beach and Hermit Beach. The resolution provides for limitations on access, restrictions on group picnic use, and an enhanced communication process to expeditiously inform the public regarding ongoing restrictions.

“This resolution will contribute to several key public safety and health aspects during these unprecedented conditions,” said Interim General Manager Indra Winquest. “It will help to ensure the health and safety of our front line employees, community members and their guests.”

In March, Governor Steve Sisolak issued a Declaration of Emergency to facilitate the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Following this declaration, the governor issued 24 emergency directives. Presently, the State of Nevada is still within Phase Two of the Nevada United: Roadmap to Recovery plan. Most recently, Governor Steve Sisolak announced a state mandate requiring individuals to wear a facial covering or mask while in public.

IVGID has taken steps since the governor's Declaration of Emergency was issued to maintain the health and safety of employees, community members, and all who enjoy Incline Village and Crystal Bay. Resolution 1881 is a targeted effort, with specific definitions and time periods, to continue the public safety and health effort.

Resolution 1881, an emergency resolution effective June 24, 2020 through December 31, 2020, is summarized as:

1. Active IVGID Recreation Pass Holders shall be allowed access to all IVGID beaches and are required to keep their recreation pass with them while present.
2. Active IVGID Recreation Punch Card holders shall be allowed access to all IVGID beaches and are required to keep their punch card with them while present.
3. IVGID Recreation Punch Cards may not be exchanged for passes.
4. Parcel owners are able to purchase additional IVGID Recreation Punch Cards at a cost of one-fifth (1/5) of the total Recreation Facility Fee, presently at $830, or at a per Recreation Punch Card cost       of $166.
5. In order to ensure the health and safety of the community during this time of a pandemic, occupancy may be limited, up to complete closure, by IVGID staff with the approval of the IVGID General             Manager, at all IVGID beaches.
6. The IVGID General Manager has the discretion to restrict and/or cancel any and all group picnic reservations.
7. The IVGID General Manager, in consultation with the IVGID Board of Trustees Chairperson, can make emergency changes which will be posted to the IVGID website.
