COVID-19 red tier

Placer County moves to less restrictive COVID-19 tier

The State of California today moved Placer County into the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy 'red' tier - further easing restrictions in the county.

Sectors that can open indoors with modifications include restaurants, places of worship, gyms and fitness centers, movie theaters and personal care services.

The full list of sectors is available online at https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/

poor air quality smokey air

Air quality advisory issued for Placer County through at least Friday

An air quality advisory has been issued by the Placer County Health Officer and Placer County Air Pollution Control District through at least Friday, Sept. 11, due to continued poor air quality conditions from smoke from the numerous wildfires throughout the state.

Wildfire smoke continues to affect large areas of Placer County with elevated levels of particulate matter dependent upon wind direction, until the fires are extinguished. Poor air quality has the potential to cause negative health impacts, particularly for sensitive groups and when exposure is prolonged.

If you can see or smell smoke, avoid all unnecessary outdoor activities, especially if you are in an area where visibility is greatly reduced.

New statewide COVID-19 tenant and landlord protections enacted

Under the new legislation, no tenant can be evicted before February 1, 2021 as a result of rent owed due to a COVID-19 related hardship accrued between March 4 – August 31, 2020, if the tenant provides a declaration of hardship according to the legislation’s timelines.

For a COVID-19 related hardship that accrues between September 1, 2020 – January 31, 2021, tenants must also pay at least 25 percent of the rent due to avoid eviction.

Tenants are still responsible for paying unpaid amounts to landlords, but those unpaid amounts cannot be the basis for an eviction.

Landlords may begin to recover this debt on March 1, 2021, and small claims court jurisdiction is temporarily expanded to allow landlords to recover these amounts.
