    What your saying,sounds like a lot of “who shot John”.
    I don’t believe a word of it.
    Too many coincidences happening to you and people you know…
    If what you say is true,you’d have a certain “news agency” pounding on your door wanting to hear your story and reporting on this ” political pandemic conspiracy hoax” they and you are claiming.

    I’m confused. What specifically is so onerous and painful about the new requirements? Washing cooking utensils and bedding between rentals should be a standard practice and blocking off the property for 24 hours between rentals seems completely reasonable. We have multiple rental properties on the East Coast and we have implemented the same protocols (though they are self-imposed and not mandated in our case). Our YTD revenue is up 30% this year due to heavy demand for vacation rentals in remote areas that are within driving distance to major cities. I imagine Mammoth Lakes is seeing the same levels of interest. So, again, what’s the issue with the requirements?

    We are being tested on how obedient we can be. By instilling fear.
    I believe, if we ALL would stand together, not let the “narrator’s ” turn us against each other, or make us afraid to be near one another.
    Find the truth! Expose it! And save America (our world) before it’s too late. Everyone is getting brainwashed. Step away from your TV, Phone, and Radio (sorry radio, just for a moment or two). Talk with people. We are being separated, because no ONE, can conquer! It takes a VILLAGE!

    We are being scammed. My wife went down to be tested cause it was free in our town signed and waited for over an hour and left before she was tested, out of frustration. Two weeks later we got a letter in the mail saying she was positive for covid. Many people I know have had similar stories. A friend’s husband died in a motorcycle accident on the death certificate cause of death was stated covid. Wake up numbers are being manipulated. Shame this country is falling apart due to what amounts to the flu.

      Steve Wells, where did your wife go to be tested ? Did you follow up with the testing site to let them know she got results that weren’t accurate ? Did you take any responsibility to report this? “Many people” you know have gone to get tested and then left the test site because they (including your wife) were all too impatient and couldn’t be bothered to wait for testing ? You’re an epidemiologist that you feel bold enough to compare Covid-19 to the Flu ? Which “flu” exactly?

      Steve Wells, you’re lying. This story has been shared a hundred time on social media, and you basically copied/pasted. You people complain endlessly about so-called fake news, when in truth you’re the ones spreading lies.

      Thank you comrad Steve for spreading our message. The information minister will be pleased.

    Welllll…. Mammoth + Weekend + August + Covid vacationers = Sea of humanity.

    Mammoth MTN should fund a political pac to remove these goons who’ve screwed and continue to screw businesses barely able to make it. This is a joke…..where will people be able to stay in the winter? Prices gonna skyrocket……you’re gonna see a lotta people sleeping in their cars….me included. Hahha

      The only people that have “screwed” the businesses are the people who refused, and continue to refuse, to wear masks and practice social distancing.

    You forgot…no fun!

    How about no groups larger than 6, but family members no larger than 12 in a group, there are still some family’s with many children. 60 million H1n1 cases/ 4 million covid-19. Don’t crawl in a hole. Just be careful. Spacing at restaurants helps. In my city there have only been 10 cases total. And I live on the ocean, many groups partying. So what is the real problem causing spreading, since its not happening here.

    • Stop non-essential travel August 13, 2020 at 9:57 am #

      Which H1N1 EXACTLY are you talking about ? The 2009 pandemic H1N1 ? If yes, in the US, you are correct, there was an estimated 60 million cases. But you forgot to mention “only” approx 12,500 deaths due to the 2009 H1N1.

    • Charles O. Jones August 13, 2020 at 6:18 pm #

      Hey Donna, don’t ignore the fact that there have been 150K more deaths from covid (still counting), and in a much shorter period of time than H1N1. You’re comparing apples and oranges. And if your city has seen a large outbreak, consider yourself lucky. MANY other places haven’t been so fortunate.

      I agree, don’t crawl in a hole. But don’t foolishly underestimate this virus either.

    We just got back from Mammoth lakes, it’s insanely crowded on week ends, The new requirements should have included language, “no groups larger than 6, no running on trails no gathering at eateries, masks mandatory, no exceptions

    • Tinner August 12, 2020 at 9:40 pm #

      Howard, a lot of us Mammoth locals would have been perfectly fine if our local authorities had closed the town to all visitors completely, allowing only those who live and work into our town.

      • Dan Williams August 19, 2020 at 12:58 pm #

        A lot of you Mammoth locals would not have a job if the authority’s closed the town down.
