Police Chief Responds to Shelter In Place Order- 3/19 Update

Posted on March 19, 2020


Below is a message from Petaluma Police Chief, Ken Savano, about the County’s Shelter in Place Order.

“Dear Petaluma Community:

This message is being sent in response to the Shelter in Place order issued by Dr. Mase, the County of Sonoma Public Health Officer, that went into effect on March 18, 2020. 

Dr. Mase put a lot of thought into the order and specifically recognized the importance of agriculture and food/beverage manufacturing to our economy in Sonoma County. 

Many community members have had questions about the order. Below are resources for learning more.

I am proud and grateful for the compliance and cooperation exhibited by our community. Together we can stop the spread.”
