Please read this Order carefully. Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a crime punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both. (Health and Safety Code § 120295, et seq.)
The Sonoma County Health Officer has determined that there is an increased risk of the Coronavirus 2019 Disease (“COVID-19”) among persons living or working in congregate living facilities. Social distancing alone in these facilities is not effective due to the concentration of individuals. To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect vulnerable individuals, it is necessary for the Health Officer to direct the implementation of additional preventative measures:
Masking in Non-Resident Care Congregate Settings. Each authorized visitor of a home shall cover his or her nose and mouth with a facial covering made from fabric or cloth. If medical-grade masks are available, those may be used in lieu of a cloth or fabric facial covering. If a cloth covering is used, it must be laundered before reuse.
Physical Distancing. All residents of a home shall practice physical distancing by remaining at least 6 feet apart from other persons when out of their rooms.
A copy of this Order shall be posted at all entrances to each facility listed in Attachment A or Attachment B immediately upon receipt.
