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

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

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

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 or call 530-886-5310 for the most up-to-date social distancing and safety guidelines.
