This press release is from the Rood Center:
It is required for all California residents to shelter at home, except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. Reducing social contact can help slow the spread of this coronavirus and keep our communities healthy. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others.
A CodeRED Alert will go to all Nevada County residents on the morning of Tuesday, March 24th, to inform everyone about the requirements of California’s Stay at Home Order. Those subscribed to CodeRED will receive notifications staggered throughout the morning.
The CodeRED Stay at Home Order Alert will go out to all Nevada County CodeRED subscribers, as well as to all those who are located in Nevada County at this time through Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA). WEA is a public safety system that allows customers who own compatible mobile devices to receive geographically targeted, text-like messages alerting them of imminent threats to safety in their area.
There will also be an Emergency Alerting System (EAS) message going out over the radio in English and Spanish, and scrolling text on local channels with our EAS message. The alert will read: Questions about coronavirus? Visit Covid19.ca.gov or call 211 (833-DIAL-211).
The State has ordered all individuals to stay home except for essential needs to slow the spread of coronavirus. Essential government functions will remain open. The order is in place until further notice. More information can be found at covid19.ca.gov, mynevadacounty.com/coronavirus, or by calling 211 (833-DIAL-211).
