The Sacramento ​​County Public Health Officer has issued a new Public Health Order effective at 11:59 p.m., April 7, and will be in effect until 11:59 p.m., May 1, 2020.

The Public Health O​rder reinforces that all individuals are to stay home to increase social distancing and reduce person-to-person contact to slow transmission of COVID-19. Remember, you can go outside – just keep your distance (6 feet) and don't gather with others. When you are out in public spaces, do not touch your face, and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching shared surfaces. CDC recommends wearing a cloth face covering to protect others from being infected by those without symptoms.​

For questions about the Pu​blic Health Order, call the County's COVID-19 Hotline: 916-875-2400, and to report a violation, call 3-1-1.

The CDC has information about cloth face coverings to protect others from being infected by those without symptoms.

You have been asked to drastically change your day-to-day behavior to help our community stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Staying in your home and limiting your contact with other people is a very specific way you can help. You can still do essential grocery shopping. You can still go outside to get some fresh air or a quick walk, but keep those trips focused and maintain distance from your neighbors.

Together we can work to flatten the curve, reduce passing COVID-19 respiratory disease on to other people, or putting ourselves at risk of getting sick.​
