Dear Vacaville Community,
City staff is working closely with Solano County Public Health (SCPH) and Solano County Emergency Services (SCOES) and continuing to monitor the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely. This is a quickly evolving situation and continues to change. SCPH and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued guidance with regard to social distancing recommendations to minimize and slow the spread of COVID-19. This new guidance was made a priority in an Executive Order issued by Governor Gavin Newsom today.
The City of Vacaville, out of an abundance of caution, is following the recommendations and guidance issued by SCPH and CDPH. As a result, we are canceling, or postponing, all scheduled events at City facilities – including large gatherings with 250 people or more, sports events, and performances – until March 31, 2020. Non-essential small gatherings at City facilities must meet the CDPH guidelines recommending that the venue of the gathering allow social distancing of six feet per person. We will continue to monitor the situation and assess the need to extend the cancelation, or postponement, of events past March 31, 2020.
At this time TGIF and pre-school programs will continue; however, this may change as the situation evolves. Children and staff should not attend these programs if they are sick. If your child has chronic health issues, please consult your doctor about attendance at these programs. We will notify you at the earliest opportunity if the situation changes.
The City of Vacaville is asking for your assistance in minimizing and slowing the spread of COVID-19 by:
- Washing your hands regularly
- Staying home if you are sick
- Covering your mouth when you cough and/or sneeze
- Being mindful of social distancing and remaining at least one arm’s length from other people
If you are not sure whether or not your event is canceled, please call the Parks & Rec Department at (707) 469-4020.
Ron Rowlett, Mayor
