Update April 6, 2021: Gov. Newsom announced today that California will fully reopen June 15 as long as the supply of vaccines is sufficient and hospitalizations are low. Californians will still need to wear masks, continue risk reduction measures and will be encouraged to get vaccinated. But the color-coded tier system will end. The state will continue contact tracing and testing to help contain spread of the COVID-19 virus.  Find out more here.


Update March 15, 2021: 
Placer County moved into the Red Tier as of March 14 after statewide vaccination thresholds were met and state tier metrics relaxed as a result. Find out here what being in the red tier means.

People 16-64 years old with certain underlying health conditions are now eligible for vaccination through many health care providers and at the Placer County HHS clinic. Appointments at the HHS clinic are available here.


Update January 29, 2021:  
Governor Newsom signed legislation to extend the state’s landmark eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021.

The legislation pauses evictions for tenants who declare under penalty of perjury an inability to pay all or part of the rent due to a COVID-related reason. Tenants are still responsible for paying unpaid amounts to property owners, but those unpaid amounts cannot be the basis for an eviction, even after the moratorium ends.

The legislation also establishes the State Rental Assistance Program to allocate the $2.6 billion in federal rental assistance California will receive. The program will target aid to income-qualified tenants most at-risk with unpaid back rent. Assistance will also be extended to property owners who agree to waive 20 percent of unpaid rent.


Update January 21, 2021: 
Placer County HHS Director Dr. Rob Oldham and Placer County Public Health Program Manager Mike Romero gave an update on COVID-19 and vaccinations in Placer County at the January 20 Roseville City Council meeting.  You can watch the update here.

COVID-19 vaccination appointments are extremely limited right now as vaccine allotments have been scarce. Appointments for eligible groups will continue to open as more vaccine becomes available.

Check back at placer.ca.gov/vaccineclinics and text PLACERVACCINE to 898211 to receive vaccine updates, and make sure your health care provider has your current contact information.


Update January 12, 2021:
The Greater Sacramento Region, which includes Placer County and Roseville, moved back into the purple tier after being released from the Regional Stay-at-Home order. Governor Newsom released this video explanation. 


Update January 8, 2021:  
In this short video, Placer County HHS Director Dr. Rob Oldham gives a quick rundown of the state’s initial phases of vaccine distribution and discusses how the community can prepare and stay informed in the coming months.

Update December 10, 2020:
The Greater Sacramento region dropped below the 15% ICU availability threshold, triggering increased restrictions effective at 11:59 p.m., Thursday, December 10. Learn more about the restrictions.

Most city offices will be closed until further notice starting December 11. Many city services are available online. Find updated city services here.

Update December 3, 2020: 
A Regional Stay Home Order will go into effect within 24 hours in regions with less than 15% ICU availability. It prohibits private gatherings of any size, closes sector operations except for critical infrastructure and retail, and requires 100% masking and physical distancing in all others.

Roseville and Placer County are in the Greater Sacramento region.

The order will remain in effect for at least 3 weeks and, after that period, will be lifted when a region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%. This will be assessed on a weekly basis after the initial 3 week period. Learn more about this order.



Update November 16, 2020:
 As COVID-19 cases sharply increase across the country and California, Governor Gavin Newsom and state public health officials announced immediate actions today to slow the spread of the virus. The state is pulling an emergency brake in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy resulting in 94.1 percent of California’s population, including Placer County, in the most restrictive tier.  The state will reassess data continuously and move more counties back if necessary. California is also strengthening its face covering guidance to require individuals to wear a mask whenever outside their home, with limited exceptions.



Update November 10, 2020: With COVID-19 cases rising, the State moved Placer County back to the red tier of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. This increases restrictions on indoor operations of restaurants, gyms, places of worship and others. Visit covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy to see what's open.  



Update October 13, 2020:
 The State of California today moved Placer County into the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy 'orange' tier - further easing restrictions in the county.

Sectors that can open indoors with modifications include wineries, cardrooms and family entertainment centers – while other sectors such as restaurants, gyms and places of worship can increase their indoor capacity.

The full list of sectors is available online at https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/



Update September 9, 2020:  
The Placer County Board of Supervisors took action to rescind their local health emergency. It is important to remember that we are still under the State Order and still must adhere to the State Guidelines.

Rescinding the local health emergency declaration does not mean COVID-19 is no longer a health risk.

  • We are not able to reopen as usual
  • Businesses need to continue to follow COVID protocols
  • Schools can only open with precautions in place
  • State orders still apply

The City of Roseville will continue our enforcement efforts focused on education and compliance based on the state guidance.



Update September 8, 2020:  
The State of California today moved Placer County into the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy 'red' tier - further easing restrictions in the county. Sectors that can open indoors with modifications include restaurants, places of worship, gyms and fitness centers, movie theaters and personal care services.

The full list of sectors is available online at covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/


Update August 28, 2020:  
Governor Newsom released a new COVID-19 response framework called the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

Placer County Public Health: "Placer's placement into the State's 'purple' tier is due to inclusion of data from early August, when we were still on the former Monitoring List. We expect to have news around movement to the 'red' tier and additional easing of restrictions around Sept. 8 if trends continue in the right direction. However, this transition has created further delay for schools, and we have written to CDPH to express this concern.”

Placer County has also received information from CDPH indicating that schools will be allowed the option to resume in-person instruction on September 1, as they would have after coming off the previous Monitoring List.


Update July 13, 2020:
Governor Newsom's office announced that ALL counties must close indoor operations in these sectors:

  • Dine-in restaurants
  • Wineries and tasting rooms
  • Movie theaters 
  • Family entertainment centers (for example: bowling alleys, miniature golf, batting cages and arcades)
  • Zoos and museums
  • Cardrooms

Additionally, bars, brewpubs, breweries, and pubs must close all operations both indoor and outdoor statewide.

Placer County is on the County Monitoring List for 3 consecutive days and will be required to shut down the following industries or activities unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up.

  • Fitness centers
  • Worship services
  • Protests
  • Offices for non-essential sectors
  • Personal care services, like nail salons, body waxing and tattoo parlors
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Malls

Update July 1, 2020:
City of Roseville offices will reopen to the public at 8 a.m., Monday, July 6. Some in-person city services will require appointments. Not all in-person city services will be open immediately.

Everyone entering city public buildings will be required to wear face coverings, unless exempt as is detailed in the State’s face covering order. City employees will be wearing face coverings when working with customers unless otherwise shielded.

Find out which in-person city services are available here.


Update June 18, 2020:
Wearing face coverings in most settings outside the home is now required in California to slow the spread of COVID19. Read more on the state's new face covering mandate here.


Update May 12, 2020:
The State of California accepted Placer County's submission for variance allowing the county to begin reopening additional businesses in Stage 2 of the four-stage roadmap that had been closed under the state’s current order.

Business sectors in Placer County that will be allowed to resume operations once they have implemented state reopening guidance include shopping centers and all in-store retail, in addition to dine-in restaurants — although bars, breweries and wineries will not be permitted to reopen beyond takeout and delivery at this time unless they provide in-house dining. Office-based businesses will also be allowed to reopen but telework is strongly encouraged.




On March 19, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued a statewide stay home except for essential needs order, until further notice. Learn more at covid19.ca.gov

This order moves the City to a primarily remote workforce. Exceptions to the remote work are for Essential Government Services which are primarily related to safety, utilities, parks maintenance and administrative functions such as payroll.

The City of Roseville continues to coordinate our efforts to protect our community with Placer County Public Health. In the rapidly changing environment, please visit placer.ca.gov/covid19 or call 530-886-5310 for the most up-to-date social distancing and safety guidelines.
