Beginning tonight (4/7/20) at midnight, Sacramento County Health officials have extended the order to stay home until May 1, 2020. We also need to continue practicing social distancing and avoiding contact in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19

According to the Sacramento County website the new public health order includes:

  • Requiring essential businesses to implement social distancing protocols
  • Restricting access to recreation facilities
  • Clarifying essential activities and essential travel
  • Clarifying and limiting essential business activities
  • Directing all businesses and government agencies to cease non-essential operations at physical locations in the County
  • Prohibiting all non-essential gatherings of any number of individuals
  • Continuing to exempt individuals experiencing homelessness from the order but urging them to find shelter and government agencies to provide it
It’s the single most important thing we can do to slow the spread of the virus and save lives.
