Pyramid Lake now open for recreation

Robert Perea, The Fernley Reporter

After being closed to non-tribal members since April because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Council reopened Pyramid Lake to recreation Monday.

Included in the reopening is a new set of COVID guidelines that users must follow.

The lake was closed to non-tribal members because the Tribal Council had stated a declaration of emergency for the Pyramid Lake Paiute Indian Reservation.
