Amador County Public Health Officer Lets Stay-at-Home Order Expire:
Residents Guided Exclusively by the Governor’s Order
Amador County, CA – The Amador County Stay-at-Home Order will expire today, May 15, 2020. Amador County will remain under the State Health Officer’s Stay-at-Home Order updated on May 7th for the entire state. That order continues to restrict non-essential travel and prohibit gatherings, as travel, mixing with others outside of your own household, and lack of physical distancing are factors that are highly likely to lead to an increase in COVID-19 disease transmission.
“I am extremely pleased with how cooperative the vast majority of Amador County residents, businesses and California residents in general have been in complying with state and local health orders and directives. This cooperation has resulted in very good results, with only 9 confirmed cases in the Amador as of May 15, 2020,” says Dr. Rita Kerr, Amador County Health Officer. “The Stay-at-Home Order was very effective in reducing the import of virus into and spread within our community, thus protecting our residents. Across our community, people have adapted to restrictions on nonessential activities and to the guidelines for physical distancing, good hygiene and other safety measures.”
As our community reopens as allowable according to Stage 2 of the State’s Resilience Roadmap, Amador County Public Health will remain vigilant in monitoring COVID-19 in the county.
