Rocklin and Placer County Fall Under New Regional Stay at Home Order
Order Effective Dec 10 at 11:59 p.m.
The “Greater Sacramento” region, which includes Rocklin and Placer County, will be under a regional stay at home order effective at 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10, to slow the spread of COVID-19 and reduce strain on the local health care system.
City of Rocklin offices are listed as “essential” and will remain open during normal business hours but the City encourages the public to conduct as much business as possible online and to make appointments, if possible, when in-person business is required.
The state order will remain in effect for at least three weeks and be lifted when the Greater Sacramento region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%.

On Dec. 5, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a regional stay at home order that takes effect in California regions when hospital ICU capacity falls below 15%.
The state was divided into five regions, with Placer County and Rocklin placed in the “Greater Sacramento” region.
When a region falls below the 15% ICU threshold, they will be notified and the new order will take effect in 48 hours. The order will remain in effect for at least three weeks and be lifted when a region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%. The State estimates the “Greater Sacramento” region will trigger the new restrictions in early December.
