March 27, 2020 - The City cares about the health of residents, city employees, visitors and those who work in Woodland.
All critical services that Woodland provides – police and fire protection, traffic control, water and wastewater and solid waste pickup – will continue to be fully available as normal. Woodland is prepared to continue providing these services uninterrupted, should the virus spread within the community.
Residents are reminded to stay at home, and only go out for essential work and essential activities. Despite the rain this week, spring temperatures and sunny days are coming. "Woodland residents have really stepped up and are doing their part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We urge the community to continue to spend time at home and outside with their immediate families and practice safe social distancing until such time the shelter-in place orders are lifted. Let’s keep our spirits up and do our part." Mayor Rich Lansburgh. Residents are advised that group sports, picnics, barbeques, and other outdoor group gatherings in City parks or other locations are not allowed under the Yolo County Public Health Official’s shelter in place order. Also, people should refrain from the use of playgrounds at parks as COVID-19 can last for 72 hours on surfaces.
