The recent Executive Order signed by the Governor states: “To protect public health, I as State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health order all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence except as needed to maintain continuity of operations of the federal critical infrastructure sectors…”
The District is elevating its precautionary measures for the health and safety of the community and our employees until further notice and reminds you of the following important information:
