Dr. Tom Boo, Mono County Public Health Officer, issued an Order on August 11, 2020 that supersedes and replaces the June 18, 2020 Health Officer Order regulating lodging within the Town of Mammoth Lakes. This Order does not apply to unincorporated areas of Mono County.

The new Order imposes new requirements on lodging facilities within the Town of Mammoth Lakes that emphasizes existing State requirements for the protection of visitors and residents (including the hospitality workforce).
