COVID hospitalizations

Placer County Public Health issues new COVID-19 health warning

The Delta surge has resulted in record numbers of COVID-related hospitalizations this week and is leaving local hospitals with less room to absorb more patients requiring hospitalization.

Hospitals in Placer County are providing critical care in areas not typically designed for that purpose, reporting a high level of acuity in their patients, and are experiencing strains on their workforce. COVID patients occupy nearly one third of licensed beds in Placer County.

To preserve critical infrastructure that serves all, including hospitals and schools, Placer County Public Health has issued a new health warning urging use of higher-quality masks indoors and stressing the importance of vaccination.

With the current drought conditions, it's more necessary than ever to conserve water. There are many ways to reduce water use in the yard and your home.

Here are some helpful tips to maximize your water savings:
