Amended Sacramento County Public Health Order, Bars Ordered to Close

Upon the recommendation of the California Department of Public Health and California Governor Gavin Newsom, the Sacramento County Public Health Order has been amended to remove bars off of the list of allowable activities. The Order goes into effect today, June 29, at 6 p.m.

Sacramento County continues to see a day-over-day rise in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. County public health officials stated that in-home gatherings are responsible for rising COVID-19 cases. With the 4th of July this weekend, Sacramento County reminds residents that indoor gatherings of any size with people who are not part of your immediate household are still prohibited by both local and state health orders.
