City of Folsom Issues Additional Emergency Order

Folsom City Manager Elaine Andersen issued a third emergency order on Friday, April 10 to help further prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the Folsom community.

Emergency Order DES-03-20:

  • Waives the 72-hour recreational vehicle parking limit for first responders who choose to isolate themselves to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 during the ongoing health emergency. With certain limited exceptions, the City of Folsom Municipal Code limits recreational vehicle parking on city streets for no more than 72 consecutive hours. The Emergency Order waives this parking restriction for first responders assisting with the COVID-19 response. Residents who want to take advantage of the relaxed regulations should contact Code Enforcement Supervisor Pete Piccardo at 916-461-6227 or ppiccardo@folsom.ca.us. Applicants will be asked to provide verification of first responder status (e.g., hospital-issued identification card for healthcare professionals, paramedic license, or law enforcement badge). A permit will be issued and should be placed on the front windshield or entry door of the RV so that the permit is visible from the outside.
  • Requires City of Folsom non-public safety employees to maintain a six-foot social distance while at work. The Order strongly recommends that when City employees are engaged in essential activities or visiting essential businesses that they wear face cloth coverings over their nose and mouth. Visitors to City facilities, including Folsom City Hall, are also strongly encouraged to wear face coverings.

The emergency order will remain in effect until termination of the local emergency by the Folsom City Council. To learn more about the City of Folsom’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including links to the full text of all city emergency orders, visit www.folsom.ca.us/COVID-19.
