On March 19, the City of Citrus Heights proclaimed a local state of emergency. While it may seem contradictory, this proclamation does not signify an increased risk to Citrus Heights residents. Rather, by proclaiming a local emergency, the City is taking important administrative action. "This proclamation allows our City potential access to additional aid and available resources — and ultimately assists us in ensuring the safety and well being of our community," said Citrus Heights Mayor Jeff Slowey.

In line with County and State recommendations, City Staff are postponing our own meetings, events, and gatherings, especially those that host high-risk populations at least till the end of April. Staff are contacting those affected directly, and updating our website accordingly. We will continue to publish City news related to Coronavirus on this page and recommend all residents visit the County website for COVID-19 directives.

While City Hall has closed its lobby and front counters for increased safety, residents and business owners in Citrus Heights still have access to services remotely.
