Tuolumne County Supervisors To Vote On COVID-19 Items

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors will review a list of items on Tuesday in response to the COVD-19 pandemic.

Early in the meeting, the board will hear a presentation about the local response from Health and Human Services Agency Director Rebecca Espino, Interim Public Health Officer Dr. Eric Sergienko, Health Program Supervisor Michelle Jachetta and Assistant Director of Health and Human Services Agency Steve Boyack.

Later the supervisors will vote on an emergency ordinance to temporarily prohibit commercial and residential evictions through May 31, if the tenant has lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic (such as substantial medical expenses or job loss).

The board will also discuss a resolution requested by Supervisor Anaiah Kirk advising non-essential travelers to refrain from entering the county and to abide by Governor Newsom’s Stay at Home order. For example, it requests that Caltrans place signs on major thoroughfares in the county advising non-essential travelers to refrain from entering, and it requests educational checkpoints on thoroughfares advising people not to enter.

Tuesday’s meeting starts at 9am.
