We Are Roseville - March 16, 2021


March 16, 2021

Red tier covid

Placer County moved into the Red Tier as of Sunday, March 14 after statewide vaccination thresholds were met and state tier metrics relaxed as a result.

"This is a big step and one that we welcome. With our case rate increasing gradually in the past week, it remains important to take precautions like masking and distancing, as none of us want to lose the progress we've made as a county," said Placer County Health and Human Services Director and Interim Health Officer Dr. Rob Oldham.

Find out here what being in the red tier means.

COVID vaccinations expanded to more groups and those 16-64 with certain health conditions

People 16-64 years old with certain underlying health conditions are now eligible for vaccination through many health care providers and at the Placer County HHS clinic.

Appointments at the HHS clinic are available here. Those with underlying conditions will need to bring documentation to the HHS clinic as described here.

The state has also added new groups including public transit, foster families, janitors, and others to previously eligible phases of vaccination. See the vaccine allocation guidelines.

Sign up for notifications about future batches of appointments by texting PLACERVACCINE to the number 898211.

Video: What's Happening in Roseville for March

We're back with our monthly video update to provide you information on the vaccine, how to maximize your COR fitness membership, and more Roseville news in our March update.

Stopping leaks in their tracks

The average home wastes nearly 10,000 gallons of water per year from easy-to-fix household leaks; that’s equivalent to washing 300 loads of laundry (or enough to do laundry for 10 months)!

During the month of March, we’re inviting everyone to take the 10-Minute Challenge to find and fix household leaks.

Building electrification

Introducing incentives for all-electric new construction

In Roseville, the benefits really add up with an all-electric home. As part of Roseville Electric Utility’s new Building Electrification Pilot Program, we offer incentives for homebuilders – up to $4,000 in rebates per qualifying lot.

According to research, California’s buildings represent about 25% of the state’s total greenhouse gas emissions. One way to reduce GHGs is building electrification. This includes switching from fossil fuels to electricity use for space heating, water heating, induction cooking and clothes drying. Eligible homebuilders can receive incentives for all-electric single family and multi-family homes.

For homebuilders in the Greater Sacramento Region, this also means saving time and money by expanding your reach throughout the region.

Plug-in to the possibilities of an all-electric home. For more information on how to get started, visit roseville.ca.us/plugin.
