Shelter In Place Order

City of Davis Fire Chief Tenney and Police Chief Pytel have issued the following statement:

The State of California and Yolo County have issued stay at home orders to help slow the spread of COVID-19. They are legal orders and the City is asking everyone to comply with the spirit and intent of the orders, which is to stay at home to protect the public health. We ask everyone take these orders seriously and to make smart decisions about whether leaving their residence is reasonable, necessary and essential activity under the orders. The orders can be enforced by our law enforcement officers, however, we would appreciate voluntary compliance.

The text of these orders, and links to find answers for questions received by Yolo County officials on the Order can be found on the City’s website: COVID-19/Novel Coronavirus Information.

Stay Informed

Stay alert and stay aware by signing up for area emergency notification systems.
