As of March 19, 2020, at 11:59 p.m., the Sacramento County Health Officer is directing all individuals living in the county to stay at their place of residence except for essential activities. The legal order is based on the same directives of social distancing issued to slow the transmission of the disease, but it provides more detail and enforcement ability. The legal order limits activity, travel and business functions to only the most essential needs and is intended to protect those most vulnerable to the disease, slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, and preserve local healthcare capacity.
The Board of Trustees held a special meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 20, to discuss returning to in-person instruction, and following reports from senior staff regarding campus preparations and receiving numerous comments from the public, including many Twin Rivers employees, the Board voted unanimously to return to in-person/hybrid learning beginning Jan. 19, 2021.
I am grateful for the Board’s thoughtful deliberations and decisive action. Clear direction and clarity of purpose are energizing, and you can be sure that we will put this energy to work for our staff and students, so that we will be fully prepared to welcome them back to schools that are fully compliant with the health guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
