Placer County is moving safely through the state guidelines for reopening procedures, with restaurants, retail establishments, barbershops, and hair salons reopening to the public.
The City of Rocklin understands this is a difficult time for local businesses and encourages residents to show their support by shopping and dining locally with the new “Come in Rocklin, we’re open!” campaign. The campaign will provide Rocklin businesses with tools to notify patrons of their reopening and new safety protocols. It also stresses that shopping local is paramount to reestablishing the City’s thriving economy, maintaining jobs, and supporting vital city and public services.
The Rocklin Police Department hears your concerns over the current situation that is facing our community and others across our state and nation. We want you to know we are continually working with our federal, state and regional partners, diligently monitoring any potential threats and taking steps necessary to ensure we are prepared to respond.
The COVID-19 crisis has shone a spotlight on just how quickly people can find themselves without food. Applications for meal delivery from Seniors First, Placer County’s only senior-focused service organization and provider of Meals on Wheels, have more than doubled in recent weeks.
Over 400 clients are served in Placer County per day through Meals on Wheels. Many of Seniors First’s volunteer delivery drivers, some seniors themselves, have been sidelined due to COVID restrictions which has dramatically increased the need for additional volunteers.
