Mask Guidance from Yolo County

The Centers for Disease Control recently came out with a recommendation about the use of cloth masks as a way to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Yolo County Health Department has released some guidelines about the use of this type of mask. In West Sacramento, several seniors who usually meet weekly at the Community Center, have been busy making hundreds of cloth face coverings from their homes. Please watch this video to learn more!

Restoration Damage in Southport Floodplain-Keep Out!

 levee offroading

Earlier this week unauthorized vehicles drove into the Southport Floodplain Restoration Area, west of Village Parkway/ Lake Washington Boulevard intersection, on the waterside of the new levee along the Sacramento River. Not only is this behavior prohibited as a general rule, but it also violates the Yolo County shelter in place order and is considered a non-essential activity.
The ATVs damaged the restoration area, creating ruts, running over irrigation, and destroying trees and plants. This floodplain restoration area is Phase 3 of the Southport Levee Improvement Project and it provides necessary mitigation for present and future levee improvements. More than 78,000 trees and plants were installed this past year in the recaptured floodplain. This area will grow into a riparian forest providing habitat for fish, birds and terrestrial animals. This area is closed to unauthorized vehicles. The top of the levee is available for use by pedestrians and cyclists, however, ATVs and motor cycles are prohibited. Please share this message, and if you see anyone out there doing damage, call the West Sacramento Police dispatch at 916-372-3375 or report it using West Sacramento Connect.
