Public Health - Coronavirus

Posted on: April 2, 2020

Stay Home & Save Lives from COVID-19


The Nevada County Public Health Department needs your help in combating coronavirus in our community. At this critical time, you can make an important contribution to the battle against COVID-19 by sheltering in place.

By now we hope it’s clear that it is required for every person statewide to stay home. We are asking all Nevada County residents to commit to staying at home except for essential needs, “volunteer” to spread the word, and to keep family and friends accountable.

As a "volunteer," you pledge to stay at your residence at all times except as needed for necessities (such as groceries, prescriptions, health care or neighborhood walk) or to provide an essential service to the community. By limiting contact with anyone outside of your household, you can help break the chain of infection.

Please bring your compassion, kindness, and sense of civic duty to this important assignment. We all need to work together to keep our community healthy.

Stay home, save lives & take care of Nevada County.
