Above is the Visitor Sentiment Research we at MLT put out a few weeks back
It is also posted online here: http://mltindustryinsider.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Mammoth-Lakes_Visitor-Sentiment_April-2020_v2.pdf
Can we use "Naturally Social Distant" in a marketing campaign?
What does the timeline look like for lodging? Will there be different timelines for cabins vs hotel/motel? Is the date of 5/31 still good?
Visitors may be reluctant to visit with the limited number of hospital beds. Has the number of beds been increased?
since there isn’t any summer air service, what is the timeline for commercial air service moving to Bishop?
We’ve been hearing a lot about the business community involved in the economic recovery group, and everyone seems really concerned about the future of businesses here which is great, but I also wonder what voice the workforce has in this conversation?Servers or bussers or dishwashers will have a very different perspective than the owner of the restaurant. It seems to me that everyone who has a voice in planning is not rolling up their sleeves and working in direct, high-volume contact with visitors. Restaurants will be particularly challenging because guests can’t wear a mask while eating dinner, and there is a high chance of germ transmission through plates and glassware. I hearing from restaurant staff that they are afraid to go back to work, and they will take a pay cut if they are asked to go back to work before Federal unemployment ends. Some people are saying that they feel like they are going to be a public health experiment.
So I am wondering if you heard any of these voices, have you sought out any of theses voices and how they and how they can get involved?
At Tuesdays meeting, led by John Peters, it was decided to draft a letter to the Governor stating that Mono County along with several other counties, was ready to open. Is that going forward?
how are we going to manage all the fishermen coming up for a 6/1 opener?
if I sell skin care retail does that mean I can start to re open with guidelines ?
Has Mammoth Mountain canceled ALL activities for this summer? Bike Park etc.?
We produce a small arts and crafts event at Kittredge Sports in late July (anywhere from 20 to 40 artists, no food, no music, no sponsors). Do you expect this type of event has possibility of happening or absolutely not? Not sure if applying for a permit makes sense now or if we should continue to hold off. Thank you for the meeting.
With unemployment recipients receiving an extra $600 per week through the end of July, what is the plan to ensure housekeepers, waitstaff, dishwashers, and others will actually come back to work before then?
This is a great meeting, will it be Interpreted to Spanish for our Latino Community? Have a great day.

What is MLT's plan to start actively promoting visitation back to town and the surrounding area?
We should also look at other countries / states / cities and see what has worked and not worked and learn from them.
I'm worried that as certain businesses are "allowed" to begin operating, that they will no longer qualify for monetary assistance. And while in a city this may not be as much of an issue, I believe that if our visitation numbers are significantly lower this summer, then even if businesses are allowed to operate that they still may not financial succeed. Is there any way to let our state government understand the unique issue this may pose in specifically tourist driven communities (obviously we are not the only ones that may have this issue)
Dr Boo, are you concerned that if Mono County opens first among counties for near-cations, that we could be inundated with droves of Californians? Are we truly prepared from a health standpoint?
was there discussion yesterday or at any time regarding our county and community opening for our local population first? Examples being allowing Mono County residents to perhaps book camp sites, stay at hotels, make tee times to golf, etc. A sort of soft re-opening for locals before we start promoting tourism.
suggestion Laura . . . jump ahead, there are some good questions appearing on the chat scroll . . .
Here's the link for essential jobs https://covid19.ca.gov/
Do we know if the USFS is going to open Devils Postpile?
Is there a plan for all of the weddings that have been planned and already paid for? Or should we just reschedule all of them to 2021?
Lots of great questions in the cue. Will you answer post event and email out answers?
or post on chamber site?
I’m willing to work on answers if someone (Lara?) able to compile them?
When looking towards groups, I'd like to ask that we look at person per square foot rather than total # of people at a group event. Some of the opportunities for this summer will be in programing rather than "events"
there has also been a suggestion to reach out to Spanish speaking community with something similar. there is a Spanish virtual community meeting this evening at 6:30 this evening
Yes, we will compile all of the questions, get them answered and get them out. Thank you all for your participation.
thank you for this webinar
Thank you for the meeting!
