The State has issued a Regional Stay At Home order that mandates residents to stay at home after a region has been announced to have less than 15% ICU availability. Kern County falls into this category. This order prohibits private gatherings of any size, closes sector operations except for critical infrastructure and retail, and requires 100% masking and physical distancing in all others.
The goal of these new restrictions is to minimize personal interactions, which will hopefully slow the spread of the virus and preserve critical ICU hospital beds. This is a reversion to our earlier Spring 2020 quarantine/stay at home order. In our effort to be considerate and safe, we will also revert to our Spring 2020 operations.
Effective immediately, we will close the CSD office to the public through at least the end of the year, possibly re-opening January 4, 2021 dependent upon restrictions status. We will provide remote work to eligible employees as recommended.
Meeting Resident Needs:
- Public Works crews will continue reporting for work, and we’ll be emphasizing our safety precautions for COVID-19.
- The Police Department will maintain their current hours for lobby access, and while RFID sales will be suspended, new residents can obtain a windshield access sticker for their vehicle at the PD.
- Administrative staff will be able to interact with customers via telephone
- Board meetings will continue to be held via Zoom.
We appreciate your continued patience through these trying times as we all do our part to help slow the spread. If you need assistance, please call the CSD at 661-821-4428 and leave your name, number and a brief message. Calls will be returned within 24 hours.
