3/20/20 Update: Weekly Council Meetings Announced
Shelter In Place Enforcement
Reminder: The Yolo County Shelter in Place order is enforceable. Please become familiar with the following message from the West Sacramento Police Department:
The State of California and Yolo County have issued stay at home/ shelter in place orders to help slow the spread of COVID-19. They are legal orders and the City of West Sacramento is asking everyone to comply with the spirit and intent of the orders, which is to stay at home and social distance to protect the public health. We ask everyone take these orders seriously and to make smart decisions about whether leaving their residence is reasonable, necessary and essential activity under the orders. The orders can be enforced by our law enforcement officers; however, we would appreciate voluntary compliance.
