All Yorba Linda City facilities will be closed to the public as of Wednesday, March 18, following Tuesday’s executive order (PDF) from the Orange County Health Care Agency to slow the transmission of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The County’s emergency order prohibits gatherings of any size in the county, eliminates dining in at restaurants, and strongly encourages those 65 and over and those with underlying health conditions to stay home. Because Yorba Linda is under the County’s jurisdiction, the City of Yorba Linda is encouraging our residents and businesses to abide by the orders. For questions about this directive, please call the County of Orange Public Information Hotline at 714-628-7085. Food Facility owners with questions should call Orange County Health/Environmental Health at 714-433-6000.
Please note, this order is NOT an order to shelter in place, per a press release (PDF) issued by the Orange County Operational Area.
