COVID-19 Resources

With Halloween and Día de los Muertos quickly approaching, it’s important to stay safe. Take a look at the State’s Halloween and Día de los Muertos guidance on how to celebrate while taking precautions for COVID-19.

A note to Parents and Caregivers as Yolo County COVID-19 cases rise:

To stay safe at this time, we all need to limit our exposures outside of our household, and this means wearing facial coverings and keeping physical distance of 6 feet or more, even if we are with extended family or good friends and neighbors. 

If you are exposed to someone outside of your household, they can bring Coronavirus to you, and then you could infect everyone in your household and others in the community.

The pandemic is not yet over.  Please continue to wear masks or face coverings, stay 6 ft. or more away from people who do not live with you, wash your hands frequently, maintain good hygiene, and avoid gathering in groups, especially indoors and even among family and friends.

Need masks?  First 5 Yolo can help.  Please contact us at 530-669-2475 or e-mail us at
