A Message from Clint Quilter, Inyo County CAO:
In response to the serious public health threat posed by the outbreak of COVID-19, the County of Inyo is implementing emergency measures to protect the safety and welfare of county residents and staff, as well as provide a forum for the public to access the most up to date Inyo County information including press releases and current updates.
Inyo County is following the guidelines laid out in California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s executive order mandating that all individuals living in the State of California stay home or in their residence to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Many businesses have also been ordered to be closed. Details about the state “Stay at Home Order” and answers to the many questions it raises can be found in the FAQ section at https://www.inyocounty.us/covid-19/faqs.
Local governments are essential services that are required to stay open to ensure continuity of government. Thus, Inyo County employees will remain at work as needed to maintain critical county services and operations. For the safety of the public and county staff, county departments and offices have instituted a number of significant changes to normal operations. For an overview of those changes, see Press Releases on this site at https://www.inyocounty.us/covid-19/press-releases, which also includes additional announcements and information on the county’s COVID-19 response.
