'Tahoe is being thrashed': Lake Tahoe residents lament influx of visitors amid pandemicNow, protests are planned for Friday afternoon and Sunday morning at five locations — Truckee, Tahoe City, Meyers, Incline Village and Kings Beach. “During this crisis, the city has gone above and beyond to keep people safe, keep Tahoe safe and keep Tahoe open,” Fiore said. Tourism is the city’s biggest industry and supported 86,111 jobs before the coronavirus pandemic, according to the bureau, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Total San Francisco visitors are expected to drop to 12.9 million this year, down 52% from last year’s record-high 26.2 million visitors. It’s the biggest decline we’ve seen in the history of modern travel and tourism,” said Joe D’Alessandro, CEO of San Francisco Travel.
