SacCounty Health Officer Extends COVID-19 Order

Posted: 04/07/2020

The Sacramento County Public Health Officer has issued a new Public Health Order effective at 11:59 p.m., April 7, and will be in effect until 11:59 p.m., May 1, 2020.

The Public Health Order reinforces the direction for all individuals to stay home and extends the terms of the order to increase social distancing and reducing person-to-person contact to further slow transmission of COVID-19.

The new Public Health Order has further clarifications and limitations than the previous Order. Those include:

  • Requiring essential businesses to implement social distancing protocols
  • Restricting access to recreation facilities
  • Clarifying essential activities and essential travel
  • Clarifying and limiting essential business activities
  • Directing all businesses and government agencies to cease non-essential operations at physical locations in the County
  • Prohibiting all non-essential gatherings of any number of individuals
  • Continuing to exempt individuals experiencing homelessness from the order but urging them to find shelter and government agencies to provide it

"This new Public Health Order has additional clarification and directives, but the main point remains clear: people in Sacramento County must keep social distancing to the max," said Dr. Peter Beilenson, Director of Health Services. "The single most important thing everyone can do to beat this is to stay home."
