May Community Coffee - Shared screen with speaker view
Good Morning everyone! Please enter your questions here.
Is fishing going to open on June 1?
How do you request an order for PTE for your business?
Joani - Are the mountain bike trails one that could open?
We do not have immediate plans to open bike park or trails (for Memorial weekend) but are working through logistics/plans to open the Bike Park later in the summer.
Not sure if that last message went through. Snowcreek Driving Range will open on Friday.

Great news on the driving range, John. Any ETA on the course?
does a business need a certificate to reopen fully under the new guidelines ?
You can find a good explanation of the whole process here: https://coronavirus.monocounty.ca.gov/pages/reopening-updates
what guidelines for nightly rentals and cleaning are going to be implemented? if any....
my understanding based on what Sierra Star released- they will be opening their rental shop? and retail sales?
San Diego board of supervisors has sent a request to the Governor to allow youth sports groups of 12 people or less to start practicing again.. they expect a decision this weekend.. What is Mono Countys response and the TOML to open recreation ameneties and? Tennis Court, Pool, Playground, etc
I know the ban has been extended until June 31st
We need to prepare for reopening, so a further explanation to nightly rental cleaning procedures should be shared
ca you clarify essential worker travel? or where can I get info to share- starting to get problem that feel they can book vacation because they are essential in their town.
Why is the County and TOML enforcing the State's "guidelines"? Nearly all other counties in the State are interpreting the State's guidelines as just that, guidelines.
Operating guidelines for Sierra Star. Available on our website. Here is direct link if you are interested. https://www.mammothmountain.com/docs/default-source/default-document-library/sierra-star/200519_v2_sierrastar_covid_modifications.pdf?sfvrsn=77afcf04_16
For additional business resource info and access to guidelines:
if we have once again extended the str openings with some businesses opening who is going to support them. this town is dying n needs tourist support

This is the Chamber of Commerce. Shouldn't we be fighting for our economic development? Nearly all other TOML and County meetings and organizations are trying to stay closed for public health reasons. That is a valid voice as well, but our voice should be for the local economy, which revolves around nightly rentals. Can we come together with a common voice as have San Diego, Newport, etc. to try to get the State to adjust their guidelines for us since we are in such a unique town where we are dying economically and seeing our life's work destroyed?
i few can stand in lines at Vons, at hardware stores, and the post office. Surrounded by people who in theory are all practicing respect. when, and why not, are we going to be able to have limited access to indoor, or OUTDOOR, retail sales? I know there has been discussion of tent sales for the Holiday. Or extended outdoor sales. Absurd that we are unable to safely operate within parameters Please help me understand the differences in businesses and why we allow some but prohibit others
Are there any restrictions for LYFT, Uber and Taxi drivers?
do we have, both TOML and Mono, resources set in place for the HUGE amount of dispersed camping trash and HAZMAT (poop) that is accumulating? the FS/BLM is literally packed full of camping. We do not seem to have a disposal or refuse policy or system in place? Maybe we can have MLT step up with advice for the large number of tourists that have no guidance . Lets not ignore what is really happening outside our bubble. They are here, were just trying to pretend they are not.
Ken… “Waiting for Conditions”: There have been ZERO hospitalizations in nearly 2 months. Our business owners can open safely.
can our board of supervisors help push to open North Mono County.. we have over 3,000 sq miles in our county.. 50% of counties population is located in mammoth lakes totaling 4 sq miles.. Fishing, camping are inherently social distanced..What can we do to help open Bridgeport, Antelope Valley etc??
If the State's guidelines have the "force of law", why have the redundant Town of Mammoth Lakes bans?
We will always have some new cases - Boo, you will always have to “deal” with it to some extent. No one wants to “deal” with it - but businesses and employees are leaving town. “Dealing
Dealing is what we leaders are supposed to do.
can MLT post a “what is open” for restaurants, retail, bike service, etc. for 2nd owners as a one place to look? or in an email “what’s happening”? Expecting a lot of owners for holiday. perhaps we can help support businesses that are open.
Mammoth Mountain RV Park is ready for campers and our dump station is open as well.
The RV dump station at the Mammoth Community Water District (MCWD) is open to all users 24/7. Potable water is also available. It is conveniently located on the way out of Mammoth Lakes just off Highway 203 at Meridian Blvd. Local agencies have acknowledged a significant increase of human waste on our public lands. Campgrounds and short-term rentals are currently prohibited from operating due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as a result, dispersed camping and improper disposal of human waste has increased.
Dr. Boo if you can't help open our town. Please provide the direct information we need to lobby whoever has that power to save our community. If thats not our elected officials let all of know where we can go to start getting this moving as multiple other counties have in California. If you or anyone can please provide the direct information you have so some of us in town can begin the work we've elected you to do.
Why open RV dumps when those are not "essential travelers"? Why encourage their usage while banning the nightly rentals?
Eastern Sierra Sustainable Recreation Partnership website for closure and openings can be found at http://www.essrp.org/covid19closuresessrp
Thanks, John - if folks want to provide links to that page, send an email to email@example.com
Let's be honest, the second that we allow nightly rentals we will blow through the 2.5 cases per 10k metric (and others). We will never be able to stay within the State's metrics until a vaccine or herd immunity, both of which are a minimum of 18 months away or possibly never. Is the town willing to miss the 20/21 ski season and most likely the 21/22 season? How many more months or years before the town is willing to be more aggressive and at a minimum lift their own bans? 3 months? 6 months? 1-2 years?
why open fishing? they have no place to stay unless they are camping?
If camping is in Stage 3, how is it that campgrounds in San Diego County, Orange County, and San Bernardino County (Big Bear) are open now?

MMRVP . . . seems it's those models . . .
I know that you are supposed to release guidelines for the latter stage 2 reopening process. My question is who will be enforcing these regulations? And who can I contact with questions about these regulations? In my case who would I talk to regarding sit down restaurant regulations?

We know now that the Virus affects the vulnerable. What have we done to identify who those people are? and what plans are in place to protect the vulnerable?
Thank you to everyone who is dedicating their lives to make sure we move forward as quickly and safely as possible. This is a really testing time for our area, Mammoth is and always has been strong, we've bounced back from many things, we will come through this as well. Let's continue to stick together and be Mammoth Strong!
Thanks, Andrea - truer words never before been spoken. I have to jump - Town Council meeting starts this evening at 4:30, budget discussions first up. Thanks to all -
We have fallen well below the required 21 tests per day metric to reopen. We currently no longer meet the guidelines because of this failure. Can you please comment if this is deliberate or an oversight?
