DUCEY’S 30TH ANNIVERSARY
April 20th, 2021 was the 30th Anniversary of the Grand Opening of Ducey’s On-The-Lake on the north shore of Bass Lake. It marked an important milestone in The Pines Resort. On June 2, 1988, a kitchen fire that got out of control destroyed the main building of the historic Ducey’s Lodge. Built in the early 1940’s it became a popular gathering place over the years for several generations, known for its hospitality, lively crowds and an extensive collection of antique guns, Indian baskets and wall mounted taxidermy.
After months of planning and design work it was determined to re-build a restaurant/bar in the Pines Village to take advantage of the lakefront property there and its proximity to other resort facilities. The “new” Ducey’s featured a dining room on the main level, an upstairs casual bar and grill, and 20 lakefront guest suites. Adjacent on the lakefront property was a large pool, deck designed for group gatherings and a lawn and gazebo which became the site for numerous weddings.
Ducey’s is a welcoming lodge style facility that will continue to serve both local and out-of-area guests for many years.
STATE OF THE LAKE LEVEL
Due to the lower than average rain and snowfall this year, the lake is not expected to fill to 100% this year. Some of the seasonal slips at The Pines Marina and other locations will likely be unusable, although beaches will be accessible earlier. Stay tuned for our June Bass Lake Yosemite newsletter for future updates.

Health Check-up: CDC issues new outdoor mask guidance for fully vaccinated people.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday issued new guidance on outdoor mask use for fully vaccinated Americans.
Fully vaccinated people can now unmask at small outdoor gatherings, or when dining outside with friends from multiple households. The CDC is telling unvaccinated people that they still need to wear a mask at such gatherings.
A study from MIT revealed staying six feet apart indoors does almost nothing to stop the spread of COVID-19. According to the study, the six-foot rule is based on outdated information about how the coronavirus spreads. Other variables – like the number of people in a space, whether they wear masks, what they are doing, and the level of ventilation – are much more important.
While the United States is making significant progress vaccinating the population against COVID-19, experts remain concerned that as long as a significant number of infections are present, the virus has an opportunity to mutate. The two variants that originated in California were recently found to be 20 percent more infectious than the original virus.
Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Monday that the United States should expect to reach a turning point in the pandemic with a few weeks, if vaccinations continue at the current pace. Infections will still exist, but Fauci expects the number of infections per day, hospitalizations and deaths to significantly decline with the next few weeks.

Health Check-up: Risk of contracting COVID from surfaces is low.
The CDC acknowledged last week that the risk of contracting the coronavirus from Surfaces is low. While it is possible to become infected by touching a contaminated surface, it is much more likely a person would catch the virus by breathing in respirator droplets from another infected person.
