Placer County Public Health Amends Stay-at-Home Order


“Outdoor activity is vital for well-being and has always been considered essential. Outdoor activity must be done safely, however. Last week’s local health order has now been amended (read the amended order) to allow some outdoor businesses and activities to resume and outdoor spaces to reopen under specific safety criteria provided by Public Health. These criteria ensure that activity is conducted in a safe manner that minimizes opportunities to transmit coronavirus by preventing gathering and touching of shared surfaces.”

Updated language related to recreation in the amended order states “Dog parks may remain open if seating areas are closed, hand sanitizer is provided at the entrance/exit (or users bring their own sanitizer), and users bring their own water and waste bags.”

Also, “Golf courses and outdoor shooting and archery ranges may remain open if they follow guidance provided by the Health Officer available at: Disc golf courses may remain open if no contact is made with the baskets. Tennis, pickleball, basketball, and volleyball courts may remain open for use by members of the same household only.”

Clarifying language was also included in sections related to food production, realty, and landscaping.
