Media briefing take-away: No go for Airbnb/VRBO non-essential travelers 04-13-2020

Published April 17, 2020

Is it OK to behave as if it’s business as usual with regard to Shasta County Airbnb/VRBO and other short-term rentals in the era of COVID-19?

That topic was among many addressed during this morning’s Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency’s media briefing.

The short answer is no:  Short-term vacation rentals may not proceed as usual.
