What is Public Health recommending to help contain the spread of COVID-19?

On Thursday, March 19, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order requiring Californians to stay home in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, except for essential needs. Find current state information on COVID-19, including case data and resources, plus FAQs about the order here

The Placer County Health Officer had issued a directive earlier on March 19 followed by an order on April 10 which was amended April 16. The local order was allowed to expire on May 1 at 11:59 p.m.

However, the statewide order still applies to Placer County. For most people, this means you and those you live with should stay home or at their place of residence, except for permitted work, local shopping or other permitted errands, or as otherwise authorized.
