COVID-19 - Extended Shelter-In-Place Order
April 1, 2020 - The City of Woodland is closely monitoring the status of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are working diligently and carefully to make decisions to minimize the impact on our residents. The City is committed to pushing out accurate information regarding COVID-19, but also working to support our community in a stressful time.
Yolo County Extends Shelter in Place Order to May 1 and Launches Online Dashboard
Yolo County has extended the countywide health order for residents to shelter in place through May 1. This extension is in line with the timeframes of recent federal directives and local school closure extensions and is intended to continue to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The original health order that was issued on March 18 only extended to April 7.
To assist in informing the public regarding local COVID-19 cases, Yolo County is also launching a new online dashboard located at: www.yolocounty.org/coronavirus-dashboard. The dashboard displays data regarding confirmed cases in Yolo County by city/area, age range, gender, and more. The data only shows laboratory confirmed cases, which represent a small portion of the total cases in Yolo County since the ability of labs to do testing is extremely limited.
Say Hi Woodland!
Last night, Mayor Lansburgh concluded the City Council meeting by announcing the start of the Say Hi Woodland campaign. “As we continue to stay home and practice social distancing, it can start to feel lonely. But it is important to remember that the entire world is in this fight together. Woodland is a strong community full of genuine and caring people ready to flatten the curve. Let’s join together to say hello to our neighbors every day and lift each other up from feelings of isolation.” Mayor Rich Lansburgh. Woodland has decided to join a nationwide movement and encourage the community to go outside and say hello (a safe six feet away!). Beginning today, the City is urging the community go out on your front porches, balcony, sidewalk, or even through a window in the front of your home at 7pm every night and wave to your neighbors. This is the time to look out for each other, and check on your neighbors, even from a safe distance. We are all connected, and we will make it through this together -- Keep Woodland Strong! We look forward to seeing everyone outside, from a safe distance! #SayHiWoodland
