New SacCounty Health Order to Align with State

A new Sacramento County Health Order has been released that reflects the changes and the alignment with the State of California restrictions and guidance for the Red Tier 2/Substantial in the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The ​Sacramento County April 15 Health Order is effective immediately and will continue to be in effect until the County’s Health Officer rescinds or amends. 

Included in the County’s Health Order is the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) face covering mandate that requires all people to wear face coverings in public spaces in California unless exempt. Also documented is the requirement for schools to abide by the CDPH Guidance for K-12 Schools and COVID-19 K-12 In-Person Instruction. Additionally, it is ordered that sports programs in Sacramento County abide by the CDPH Outdoor and Indoor Youth and Recreational Adult Sports Guidance.  

“As we progress through the tiers and the re-opening of businesses, we must continue to remain vigilant and commit to wearing face coverings and maintaining six feet separation in public spaces. Also, vitally important is following the gathering guidance and getting vaccinated for COVID-19,” said Sacramento County Health Officer, Dr. Olivia Kasirye.
