Vacation-Rental Bookings Banned in Pitkin County by Public Health Order

Pitkin County’s March 23rd public health order bans short-term lodging. The Aspen Daily News reports that the county Incident Management Team is cracking down after finding out that people recently booked vacation rentals in the area and then sought medical treatment for COVID-19-like symptoms.

Those who violate the order could face misdemeanor charges leading to fines and/or jail time. Officials contacted VRBO and Airbnb, telling them not to accept new, non-resident bookings of short-term rentals and to cancel existing reservations within county boundaries.

She graduated with honors from Regis University with a Masters degree in Investigative Journalism in 2011 and says, "If it weren't for KDNK, I wouldn't have gone to graduate school and changed careers to journalism."
