City of Woodland
300 First Street
Yolo County public health officials have announced that the number of laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases are rapidly increasing in this region. Additionally, officials announce this is a critical moment in the growing outbreak of COVID-19 in the region, and decisive action is needed to slow the spread of the disease. Public health officials have weighed the potential benefits to the community’s health against the disruptive effects that these recommendations could have. These decisions were not made lightly, and recommendations are based on the best information we have at this time.
In an abundance of caution, the County recommends all non-essential meetings and gatherings be modified, postponed, or cancelled. This recommendation is effective immediately, extending through March 31, 2020 and could be extended as the COVID-19 outbreak is evaluated. Full California Department of Public Health guidelines are available online, here.
To protect Woodland residents, the City is implementing the following programming changes:

Woodland Senior Center Yolo County Public Health officials strongly recommend that people at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 should consider staying home and away from crowded social gatherings. Yolo County defines people of higher risk as persons over the age of 60, as well as people with chronic health conditions. The City of Woodland is responding to this recommendation by suspending Senior Programs through March 31. Impacted programs include, but are not limited to, all social games, exercise programs, support groups, and presentations. For any questions regarding Senior Programs, please contact the Welcome Desk at (530) 661-2001.
Woodland Public Library The library is cancelling all non-essential programs, classes and events, including community use of the Leake Center meeting rooms, through March 31, 2020.
Normal hours of operation will continue at the Library and Square One. Additionally, patrons can check out e-books, and e-audiobooks, and access online resources through the library website; www.cityofwoodland.org/library
Please continue to practice everyday preventative measures:
- Stay home when you are sick
- Cover coughs and sneezes with tissue, then throw it in the trash
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds – especially before eating, after going to the bathroom, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose
- Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects
