Local information, action, and recommendations
• Cloth face masks – Always remember that you can help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by
using a mask when in public.
• CRITICAL REMINDER – Failure to comply with Health Officer Orders places individuals and the community at increased risk of infection. Violation of Health Officer Orders may also result in a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment, fine, or both (Health and Safety Code §120295). Additional actions may be taken by the Health officer, including civil detention or requiring one to stay at a health facility or other location, to protect the public’s health if an individual who is subject to a Health Order violates or fails to comply with Health officer orders.
