evacuations for all these tourists and visitors would be almost impossible if so, many more people are in the area or is it a combination of both. >> well, it's it's a lot of things. actually, it's everything that you said and i think i think what we are first of all, it's, you know, the experience here, we always want people to have a great experience, a memorable one that brings them back again and we can offer that right now. the air quality is we just mentioned. you know, us forest service lands are are closed. activities are extremely our businesses right now are beginning to, you know, limit their hours or or close on certain days. so we we just can't offer a good experience not to mention. as you said, having of having visitors here and pending. luckily, we don't have any evacuation orders. we do have one warning. but but it's just we just have to err on the side of caution and make sure that that we are following the
instructions of our officials and making it the safest possible and is easy. our fire crews to move around where they need to go. >> so obviously this is just a recommendation. people who are packing up driving and going to show up there that i can be. asked to turn around and go back home. but what about labor day weekend. do you see this extending into like the last official weekend of summer. >> yes. i think that's a definite i i just don't see that situation changing that drastically at this point. hope. you know, if we say glass how full perhaps stay. the fires starts containment, but. you know, the wind conditions were not sure exactly what those are going to be and highway 50 remains closed indefinitely at this point. between and south lake so travel is going to be a little bit more challenging as well. >> how business take this kind of news with. tourists being
told to stay home. >> well, i think at this i unfortunately we kind of we kind of got some experience with covid last year when this happened. so i want to say we're getting good at this. but but it certainly is a little bit of a deja vu situation. i would say that they are very concerned about their family and their friends at this point that, you know, they're limiting >> their business hours as i it's reality. so bill, they don't like it. >> you know, mother nature kind of. often tells us what we're going to do up here in the mountains. and this is one of the times when she's really. >> you know, talking very, very loud in. she's screaming. >> do you think this is the new normal for the tahoe region or northern california in general come july august, september, october that that's
just not an area that's going to be great to visit during that season. >> well, i hope that's not the case. i mean, i think that, you know, this is another message that we have a lot of course that we you know, we have the hottest july ever. >> you know, i did. things are very, you know, humidity has been very, very low. our conditions for for wildfire. we're in may as if we were in october. so i would like. we have to acknowledge climate change and we will have to deal with this. but hopefully with all the smart people that are circling around this. this topic that there is some reprieve from kind of annual events and that we don't have to put that on our calendars. >> carol chaplin, the ceo and president of the lake tahoe visitors authority. thank you so much for joining us here on kron, 4 news at 3 and you hope that the situation improves and people can continue to enjoy lake tahoe for all the beauty that it not the smoky
