COVID-19 Guidelines

Return to Play Guidelines- Achieve Tahoe’s COVID-19 Response for Summer 2021

Achieve Tahoe will continue to make the health and safety of our participants and instructors a top priority as we continue to navigate the evolving CDC guidelines concerning COVID-19. We will update this page based on current conditions. We will follow all governmental ordinances as they apply to each program and program site. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we adapt and adjust moving forward.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place.  COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death, especially for senior citizens and individuals with underlying medical conditions. The policies outlined below are intended to protect our community.

If you have attended an Achieve Tahoe program in the past 2 weeks and have tested positive for COVID-19, please contact us immediately at 530.581.4161 x6. Your information will be kept confidential.

  • Reservations are required for Achieve Tahoe programs at least 48 hours in advance.
  • While indoors, face coverings are always required.
