April 30, 2020 - Extended Shelter in Place Order
The Yolo County Health Officer today extended the Health Order for people to shelter in place safely in their homes until May 31, 2020. All individuals currently living in the County are ordered to shelter in their homes. If leaving their homes for essential purposes as allowed by the Order, individuals must socially distance themselves from others by at least six feet.
This aligns with the extension timelines of neighboring counties and what is permissible and required under the recently amended California statewide Shelter In Place Order, which both informs and limits what the County and residents can do. In addition, the health order is intended to continue to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Under the extension, Yolo County is allowing the following activities to resume, effective May 4th, that have been assessed as low risk for the spread of COVID-19 and are consistent with the State Order:
- Drive-in religious services
- All construction
These activities will be required to follow guidelines from the County and its partners and adhere to strict social distancing protocols. For more information, please read the entire press release or health order below.
