Short-Term Rental COVID-19 Updates for Major U.S. Destinations

As concerns over COVID-19 continue and states adjust their travel restrictions, questions about restrictions and openings across our markets have become increasingly complicated. In order to help guests and homeowners navigate these restrictions, openings and closings (and extensions), we have prepared this resource with updates and links to information sources for each of our markets.

As travel begins to resume and markets reopen, we will continue to update this page as necessary.
