Tahoe National Forest offers virtual services in response to COVID-19

Submitted by Joe Flannery

The Tahoe National Forest is closing offices and implementing virtual services to protect the health and safety of employees and members of the public during the COVID-19 outbreak in accordance with guidance from federal and state authorities. These actions have been taken based on the best available medical advice to limit gatherings of large numbers of people and to promote social distancing.

Many services traditionally offered in our public offices are available online.
