City of Woodland

300 First Street

The following press release was issued by Yolo County. The City of Woodland is posting that same press release.

(Woodland, CA) – On January 12, the State of California announced that the Regional Stay Home Order for the Greater Sacramento Region was lifted effective immediately, after meeting projections of ICU capacity of at least 15%.  As a result of this State announcement, Yolo County is returning to the most restrictive, or purple, tier based on metrics from the State’s Blueprint of a Safer Economy. Yolo County will remain in the purple tier until at least January 26 and won’t be able to move to the substantial, or red, tier until meeting the red tier’s metrics for two consecutive weeks. 

The return to the purple tier allows many local businesses to either increase capacity or resume operations. Effective January 12, the following restrictions apply while Yolo County is in the purple tier: 

  • Bars and breweries: Outdoors only as long as food is provided. Those seated at a single table are limited to household members only. Tables must be a minimum of 6 feet apart.
