The State has now added short-term lodging to its language regarding hotels under the new regional stay-at-home order. The language states hotels and short-term lodging operators “cannot accept or honor out-of-state reservations for non-essential travel, unless the reservation is for at least the minimum time period required for quarantine and the persons identified in the reservation will quarantine in the hotel or lodging entity until after that time period has expired.” It also limits in-state reservations to essential purposes.

Here is a link to the information from the State:

As to enforcement of the State’s orders, the County will continue to educate and engage with businesses and organizations on a cooperative basis on safe practices and current health orders, and respond to complaints about violations as appropriate on a case-by-case basis.

If you have questions about the State’s order with regard to short-term rentals, please contact the State of California or your state representative. The State’s COVID-19 website is
