Were you planning to leave the city for the Holiday?

One of the country's most popular tourist destinations is shutting down

to travelers as COVID-19 continues to surge.

Vacation travel to Lake Tahoe will be banned for at least three weeks starting Friday.

The lockdown order includes 13 counties spanning from Sacramento east to the Nevada border.

Tahoe officials acknowledged, though, there's little they can actually do to keep visitors out besides pleading with people to stay home.

Can businesses survive another wave of shutdowns?
