COVID-19 - Stay Well and Stay Strong

April 10, 2020 - The City of Woodland continues to closely monitor the impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and provide information to assist residents and businesses to respond to the emergency as it evolves. Below is key information on COVID-19 as well as some measures that can be taken to decrease and prevent the spread of this virus based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance.

Coronavirus in Woodland and Yolo County - The number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Woodland is 18 (as of 5 pm on April 9, 2020). Stay up to date by visiting the Yolo County Novel Coronavirus website. With warmer weather and a holiday weekend, it is still in everyone’s best interest to stay at home, as much as possible, for the duration of the health order.

If You Are Sick

  • Mild Symptoms - If you are sick and experiencing mild symptoms you should stay at home and, if possible, sequester yourself from others you live with. Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, tiredness and a dry cough. If symptoms persist, contact your primary health care provider. There is no vaccine for the coronavirus so the best thing you can do is to rest and drink fluids. Don’t go to the ER if you have mild/no symptoms because then you are putting yourself, first responders, healthcare staff and other patients at risk.
  • Severe Symptoms - If you are short of breath or have persistent pain or pressure in the chest, you should call your healthcare provider or call 9-1-1 based on severity of symptoms.

Additional Resources

Facial Coverings - The Centers for Disease Control recently came out with a recommendation about the use of cloth face coverings 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 face coverings. 

  • A facial covering is a handmade cloth covering, bandana, or scarf that covers the mouth and nose.
  • Cloth facial coverings should:
    • fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
    • be secured with ties or ear loops
    • include multiple layers of fabric
    • allow for breathing without restriction
    • be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
  • Facial coverings can be used in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores and pharmacies.
  • Facial coverings are an additional, voluntary measure that help prevent people who are infected and have no symptoms from unknowingly spreading the virus.
  • There is no evidence that wearing a face covering will prevent you from getting COVID-19.
  • Facial coverings DO NOT replace social distancing.
  • Facial coverings DO NOT replace the stay at home order.
  • Scientific evidence shows that the BEST way to protect yourself is by staying at home.
  • The public does NOT need to wear a surgical mask or N95 respirator unless told to do so by a healthcare professional.
