A Special Covid-19 Message from Supervisor Gustafson and the Board of Supervisors | April 23

Dear Friends and Neighbors –

We know how difficult the COVID 19 pandemic has been to cope with. It has turned all of our worlds upside down. Your commitment to close business, work from home and stop gathering in groups has made a huge difference in the course of this virus. We want to assure you there is a light at the end of this tunnel. We are here to serve you and will continue to manage this crisis.

We are flattening the curve in Placer County and we have our citizens to thank for doing their part and taking the necessary precautions to ensure we remain safe and healthy.  We know that there are significant financial struggles among us. Let us assure you that we are actively looking for opportunities within our authority, to assist our residents and businesses.  We are here for you.

In the meantime, we are urging residents to reach out to our local organizations for help with food, housing and childcare, utility assistance and mental health. You can find a listing of all these resources on our county website.

While we continue to meet our public health needs, it is imperative that we partner with our business community to prepare to get back to work. We will work with our businesses, industry by industry, to determine what is the best way to open our businesses and maintain the health and safety of customers and employees. While we work on this please, to the extent possible, shop local and help your neighbors’ businesses.

We are navigating a new time together and while we don’t have all the answers today, we are working tirelessly to provide you with useful resources and information. This crisis is rapidly evolving making it more important than ever for all of us to come together as a community. Whether you’re working in healthcare, concerned about your business or worried about your health: we hear you, we are listening. Placer County is here for you.

The pandemic has impacted all of us, some harsher than others. We are actively making progress to reduce the spread of this virus but the process is challenging. We want to let you know that we are actively engaged with our health partners, county, city, state and federal officials on all matters related to this pandemic. We promise to keep you informed and we will get through this together.

Placer County is here to serve you.
