Shelter in Place & Stay at Home Directives
Governor Gavin Newsom issued a Stay at Home order to protect the health and well-being of all Californians and to establish consistency across the state in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.
"These are difficult conversations, but we must have them. This is not a permanent state, this is a moment in time,” Governor Newsom said. “We will look back at these decisions as pivotal… now is a time to go full force and meet this virus head on.”

Placer County issued a Shelter in Place directive, which expires May 2. Residents will now be guided by the governor’s Executive Order to shelter in place — removing any confusion over areas of difference between the two orders. This transition will allow a focus on planning for a phased reopening in partnership with local governments, health care, business and other stakeholders, as well as regional and state partners.

“It is of critical importance that our residents understand the necessity to shelter in place and our local order was a tool to underscore this. I am grateful that our community has shown this understanding, and I recognize the deep sacrifices made to adhere to orders,” Placer County Health Officer Dr. Aimee Sisson said. “With this awareness built, we will move forward under the statewide order and turn our local attention to planning for a phased reopening.” Watch the video from Dr. Sisson HERE.
