The City and its first responders as well as other community stake holders like California State University Stanislaus, Turlock Unified School district, Stanislaus County Fairgrounds and Emanuel Medical Center, and others are communicating and coordinating community efforts.
The City is closely monitoring and following the guidance of both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Stanislaus County Health Services Agency to ensure that we are adequately addressing the ever-evolving issue as it unfolds in our community. Specifically, the City is taking action relative to large gathering and events which put the community at risk for the spread of the virus.
The following steps will be implemented in Turlock as of Monday, March 16, 2020.
At this time all after school programs including P.L.A.Y. and A.S.E.S. will continue to operate at each school site. As an essential service, they will operate in accordance with each associated school site’s status and schedule.
The City reminds the community of the following tips and practices to help prevent the spread of the virus:
Clean your hands often
Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
The City is launching a special Coronavirus information page on the City of Turlock’s website. In addition, the City recommends the community accessing the following websites for current information regarding the virus in our region.
