New State guidance for Hotels, Lodging and Short-Term Rentals for tourism and individual travel
On April 24, 2020, the Monterey County Health Officer issued an order allowing short-term lodging for limited purposes, including lodging in support of COVID-19 containment and mitigation measures and lodging for persons temporarily relocated to provide essential services. On May 26, 2020, the Monterey County Health Officer issued a new Shelter-in-Place Order which aligns the County Health Officer Shelter-in-Place Order with applicable State Orders to fully join the State in Stage 2 and continue to move with the State through Stages 3 and 4 of the State COVID-19 Resilience Roadmap.
In light of release of new State guidance for Hotels, Lodging and Short-Term Rentals for tourism and individual travel and approval by the County Health Officer for short-term rentals to reopen following the new State guidance, the County Health Officer Short-Term Lodging Order is no longer necessary.
All other Monterey County Health Officer Orders remain in effect.
