These identified individuals are being monitored by the FCDPH Communicable Disease Investigation (CDI) Program. Our health care facilities and community medical providers are actively planning and preparing for patients who have symptoms and complications of COVID-19, but every one of our county residents needs to play a part in reducing the risk of transmission.
This is a contagious disease that takes advantage of close contact and poor hygiene, so please do your part in maintaining at least six feet of distance with your peers, staying home if you are feeling mildly ill, and washing hands and surfaces frequently as part of your daily routine.
This health crisis will require everyone to play a role during this challenging time.

Fresno County Public Health Notice:
Shelter in Place - Executive Order
On March 19, 2020, the California State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health ordered all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence, except for essential needs as needed to maintain continuity of operation of the federal critical infrastructure sectors.
As of May 8, the stay home order was modified. We are now in the first phase of Stage 2. This means in addition to essential activity, curbside retail is allowed, along with the infrastructure to support it.
As of May 12, offices, limited services, and outdoor museums are also permitted to open.
Six key health and scientific indicators will be considered before modifying the state’s stay home order to allow additional Stage 2 activity.
