A picture of rafters on the Truckee River near Tahoe City, CA has gone viral as an example of how not to practice proper social distancing.

As temperatures soar, naturally people want to head to the great outdoors, and especially into water. Rafting is the perfect summer’s day activity.

The photo shows about 100 people congregating on the shores of the Truckee River with their rafts, and socializing in close proximity to each other. Nobody is wearing a face mask.

Tahoe residents are upset that due to a spike in coronavirus cases in the area, many businesses have had to re-close.

  1. Thanks to these mindless people during a pandemic the KT-22 lift line will be shorter.

  2. Most of the “true local full time residents” left the city 4 years ago to escape reality and get on their high horse when other people do it for a weekend.

  3. Thus the sticker now says Kooks only no locals…
    And the gentrification of Tahoe continues.
