News Flash_Shelter in Place

The Sonoma County Public Health Officer issued a Health Order, effective 12:00 a.m. on March 18, 2020, that directs all individuals living in the County to shelter at their place of residence, with the exception that they may leave for essential services, essential activities, and essential work. People at high risk of severe illness from the coronavirus (COVID-19) are urged to stay in their residence to the extent possible, except as necessary to seek medical care.

Santa Rosa urges all residents to follow the Sonoma County Health Order. The essential activities listed in the Order include tasks related to:

  • Health and safety, such as obtaining medical supplies or visiting a healthcare professional
  • Services and supplies, such as groceries, cleaning supplies, and pet food
  • Outdoor activity, provided residents comply with social distancing requirements
  • Essential work or business
  • Care for a family member or pet in another household

To view the full Order including descriptions of essential services, essential business, and essential travel, visit https://socoemergency.org/order-of-the-health-officer-shelter-in-place/

This Order excludes individuals experiencing homelessness. The City is actively working with our homeless service providers to urge individuals experiencing homelessness into our shelters where social distancing measures have been implemented to help ensure their health and safety. If you are someone you know is experiencing homelessness, the following resources are available:

All other activities, work, and travel deemed non-essential are expected to be suspended in an community-wide effort to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus in our community and to protect the health and well-being of those most at risk of becoming very sick.  At this time, ALL businesses and governmental agencies are to cease non-essential operations at physical locations.
