COVID-19 - Virtual Egg Hunt and More

April 3 - The City of Woodland has been monitoring the COVID-19 issue closely over the past few weeks and has kept  in close communication with our County Health Department to maintain the most current and accurate information possible so that we can respond appropriately to this rapidly evolving situation. The health and well-being of our residents, businesses, and visitors to our community is our top priority.

With the extension of the Shelter-In-Place order we hope that our citizens are committed to staying healthy and flattening the curve.  While it is best to stay home and limit trips to essential activities and essential work, we encourage everyone to take a walk and get outside while maintaining social distancing. 

Woodland Public Library Invites You to Join Our Virtual Egg Hunt!

Woodland Public Library’s virtual egg hunt event officially starts April 1, 2020 and ends on April 12, 2020. Winner of the $50.00 gift card to a local restaurant will be announced April 13th. We invite children, teens and adults to participate. Now is a good time for mindfulness coloring. 

•    Download the coloring page from our website or at hhttps://tinyurl.com/wplegghunt ; you can also make an egg of your own, color it and show it off in a window. 

•    Go around the neighborhood (practicing social distancing, of course) and find "eggs" in neighboring windows.

•    Email us the number of found "eggs" within your neighborhood at library@cityofwoodland.org

•    Good luck and let the hunt begin!

Share your egg coloring photos using the hashtag #woodlandegghunt; 5 random winners per week will get a basket of books and goodies delivered to their door, with 1 grand prize winner announced April 13th!

The Library recognizes many of you are struggling and worried about how to maintain normalcy for your family during this unpredictable time. One of those worries should not be your library fees and charges. We will waive all outstanding charges beginning March through the statewide shelter in place order. Additionally, virtual library card applications will not require proof of ID and address verification. Now is a great time to renew your library card or apply for a new one; send an e-mail to library@cityofwoodland.org. Our staff will do what it takes to ensure you have access to our digital collection.

Important Things to Remember When Visiting the Parks

•    Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands before you come to the parks, and bring hand sanitizer with you in case you need it. 

•    Refrain from using Play Equipment. COVID-19 is known to stay on surfaces for 72-hours. Please refrain from letting your children play on this equipment as it is not possible to keep the surfaces germ free.

•    Don’t gather in groups. It’s no fun to have to stay away from friends and others, but right now, it’s the best way to protect the health and safety of our community. Instead of gathering in large groups, try using the parks for some personal quiet time.  

•    Keep your distance. Stay at least 6 feet away from others at all times. This applies whether you’re riding your bike, walking on a trail or taking your dog to the off-leash area. 

•    Announce your presence. Whether you’re out for a hike or riding your bike, let people know you’re going to pass them by ringing your bell or saying “on your left” loudly. This gives everyone enough time to move out of the way to maintain proper distance.  

•    Walk single file when passing. If you’re walking with another person, move to a single-file line when you cross paths with others so you can keep a full 6 feet between you.  

•    Stay home if you feel sick. If you don’t feel well, have a fever or have symptoms consistent with a respiratory illness, stay home. 

•    Cover your mouth and nose. If you have to sneeze or cough, follow the CDC’s guidelines by coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow instead of your hands.  

Got Toilet Paper? 

Want to keep your toilet running well during the shelter-in-place? Only toilet paper should be used in a toilet. If you use baby wipes, wet wipes, paper towels, facial tissue, napkins, paper shop rags, or anything other than toilet paper, please do not flush them down your toilet. These items can cause costly plumbing issues for you and the City of Woodland. 

Say Hi Woodland!

say hi woodland

Join your neighbors every night at 7 pm to #sayhiwoodland. The City has joined a national campaign to get neighbors together in a safe manner, while social distancing, to say hello to each other every night at 7 pm. This is a great way to go outside to get fresh air and be neighborly.

City Council Meetings

During the shelter-in-place order, pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order N-29-20, the City Council will be holding teleconferenced meetings each Tuesday at 6 pm with the next in-person meeting currently scheduled for April 21.  The next City Council meeting will be on April 7th at 6:00 pm (this is a regularly scheduled meeting and it will include an update on the City’s efforts related to COVID-19). The public is encouraged to listen to the City Council meeting live on Woodland TV Channel 20 or by visiting www.cityofwoodland.org.  If you wish to make a comment during general public comment or on a specific agenda item, there are two ways to do so. You may leave a voice mail message at (530) 661-5900. All voice mail messages received by 6:00 p.m. will be played during the City Council meeting and read into the record at the appropriate time. Any member of the public watching the live stream who wishes to make a comment on an item as it is being heard may submit an email to the City Clerk at CouncilMeetings@cityofwoodland.org prior to Public Comment on that item. Email comments submitted to be read into the record shall be no more than three (3) minutes when read aloud. Please include the agenda item in the subject line.
