City of Exeter COVID-19 Coronavirus Disease Update:
The City of Exeter remains committed to protecting and preserving the health and safety of our community as the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation continues to evolve.
State of California and Tulare County Public Health Officials are requiring all events or gatherings of more than 250 people be canceled or postponed and has recommended canceling events of less than 250. Gatherings less than 250 held in venues that do not allow social distancing of six feet per person should be postponed or canceled. For events of less than 250 that are not cancelled, handwashing/hand sanitizing stations must be provided and participants encouraged to be mindful of social distancing. Gatherings of individuals who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, such as older adults, people with chronic illnesses, and those with compromised immune systems, should be limited to no more than 10 people.
The City of Exeter continues to work closely with public health officials as well as our partner agencies in Public Safety and municipal services. As the situation continues to develop, we will be taking precautionary steps when necessary and appropriate to minimize risk to our community and staff. It is possible that some of these precautionary steps will result in some temporary inconveniences as well as reduced and postponed services, for which we apologize.
