We Are Roseville - July 21, 2020


July 21, 2020

Mayor Allard

Message from the Mayor

"For all the emergency and crisis scenarios the City plans and prepares for, a pandemic is likely the least predictable crisis we face as a community. How long it lasts and how deeply its effects will be felt remain to be seen.

We look forward to the point where we move from an active mode to the recovery phase. As we recover, we’ll integrate what we’ve learned to forge a new, stronger and better path forward."

Negative COVID test

Negative COVID-19 test not needed to return to work

A note to employers from Placer County Public Health: A person with COVID-19 does not need to be retested after their initial positive test. Instead, following guidelines from the CDC, someone with COVID-19 can return to work using criteria based on time and symptoms. This will help keep testing available for those who need it most.
