March 13 Coronavirus Update
Rocklin Postpones or Cancels Events as Recommended by CDPH
The City of Rocklin’s highest priority is to ensure the safety and health of our community. To help contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the City is following recommendations released by the California Dept. of Public Health on March 12 and postponing or cancelling all events at City-managed facilities expected to gather 250 or more people through March 31.
This includes reservations at the Rocklin Event Center and parks and recreation facilities. Staff is contacting individuals and organizations with reservations to make arrangements and will refund rental fees in full if an event is cancelled.
Public meetings, including City Council and Planning Commission meetings, will continue to be held on their regularly scheduled dates with increased precautions recommended by public health agencies.
General City of Rocklin services are operating at full capacity and leadership will continue to monitor public health recommendations, evaluate procedures and make changes accordingly.
The City also encourages everyone to continue to follow basic steps to prevent illness, including:
- Regularly wash hands with liquid soap and water, and rub for at least 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Clean surfaces touched by many people more often.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- If you are well, wearing a facemask is not necessary. Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of special masks called N95 respirators is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
- Vulnerable groups should take extra precautions and stay home when possible, turning away sick visitors.
