Public Health & State Directives

Placer County has been notified by the California Department of Public Health that, based upon the latest projections of ICU bed capacity 4 weeks into the future, the Greater Sacramento region is no longer under State's regional "stay-at-home" order, effective Tuesday, Jan. 12.

"Hospitalization growth rates have slowed. ICU and positivity rates are stabilizing. Today, the Sacramento region is coming out of the Regional Stay-at-Home Order. Hopeful signs—but we must approach them cautiously. Wear a mask. Be safe. Avoid gathering."

There are four tiers based on a county’s risk level: Purple (widespread) Red (substantial), Orange (moderate), and Yellow (minimal). Purple is the highest tier/risk level with more than seven daily new cases (per 100K) of COVID-19.

How can we get in a lower tier? We can all do our part to help our counties reach a lower tier: wear a mask in public, wash hands regularly, keep at least six feet of physical distance when in public, and limit mixing with people you don’t live with. All members of the community are encouraged to consider how personal behavior can help move Placer County to the next tier ranking. Individual action will lead to collective mitigation that will shift the county’s tier status. Follow Placer County's status HERE.
