Press Release - City of Elk Grove Proclaims a Local State of Emergency

Posted: 03/13/2020

In response to the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and to ensure uninterrupted access to City resources necessary to keep the community as safe and supported as possible, the City of Elk Grove has proclaimed a local emergency.

Proclaiming a local emergency is a prerequisite for requesting and receiving any available federal or state funding. The proclamation ramps up additional emergency operations, coordination, and planning protocols locally and within the region. It could also assist some businesses and residents to qualify for assistance through disaster relief programs.

Earlier this week, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a statewide emergency and Sacramento County declared a public health emergency. Today, President Donald Trump declared a national emergency to deal with the crisis.

As both an employer and a local government agency, the City has implemented several measures in response to COVID-19 this week. On Tuesday, the City announced it would postpone or cancel some events scheduled through the end of March. That decision has been extended to include other events and non-essential meetings. This move is in accordance with new California Department of Public Health guidelines for mass gatherings and made at the recommendation of Sacramento County health officials to reduce the potential for community transmission.

Elk Grove City Hall, all public counters, and city facilities will remain open to the public during regular hours. City services will continue to be available including police, garbage, recycling, planning, inspection, and permitting services. Elk Grove City Council meetings will be held as currently scheduled. City Council and necessary Committee and Commission meetings may be held via teleconference consistent with the recent Governor’s Executive Order (EO) enhancing State and Local Government’s ability to respond to COVID-19.

To help keep our community safe, the City encourages residents to stay home if they’re feeling sick, wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching their face with unwashed hands, cover coughs, avoid crowds as much as possible, and to practice social distancing. Avoid shaking hands and put more space between yourself and others.
