Zip codes may not be determined for all confirmed COVID-19 cases at the time of mapping and data is subject to change as more information is obtained during case investigations. Sacramento County does not report the number of hospitalizations or deaths by zip code.

During their weekly update on the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gov. Gavin Newsom and state California Health Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly encouraged Californians who traveled or gathered during the Thanksgiving holiday to help prevent the further spread of the coronavirus and self-quarantine for 14 days.

Pointing to the rate at which positive COVID-19 cases are increasing, both Gov. Newsom and Ghaly hinted at possible restrictions on businesses and non-essential activities.

Sacramento County remains in the most restrictive purple tier on the state watch list which limits indoor activities. For example, both state and county health orders prohibit indoor dining, exercise facilities and church services.
