ORDER OF THE LAKE COUNTY HEALTH OFFICER
ALIGNING LOCAL ORDER WITH GOVERNOR’S STAY AT HOME
ORDER ISSUED ON MARCH 19, 2020
DATE OF ORDER: May 8, 2020
ORDER No. C20-05
Effective immediately and will remain in effect until further notice

Please read this Order carefully. Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a
misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both. (Health and Safety Code §
120295, et seq.; Penal Code §§ 69, 148(a)(1); Lake County Administrative Code Article I,
Section 1-10)
UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF CALIFORNIA HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE SECTIONS
101040, 101085, AND 120175, THE LAKE COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICER
(“HEALTH OFFICER”) ORDERS:
1. The intent of this Order is to align the local Public Health Order with the Governor’s
State of California “Roadmap to Modify the Stay-at-Home Order,” regarding
transmission of Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (“COVID-19”). The prior local
Shelter-in-Place Order has resulted in flat or reduced hospitalizations and ICU
admissions for greater than 14 days, adequate hospital capacity, and lengthening of
the case doubling time. Aligning with the Governor’s order balances the risk of
increased transmission with the need to protect individuals at high risk of disease, as
well as the social, emotional, and economic impact of certain restrictions. Effective
immediately and until further notice, all individuals, businesses, and government
agencies in Lake County (“County”) are required to follow the Governor’s State
Orders.
