Assemblymember Kevin McCarty Statement re: Sacramento County COVID-19 Update

Sunday, March 8, 2020

In light of one school district closure, I gathered with local elected officials and public health officials in solidarity to provide an update on COVID-19 in the Sacramento region to advise our communities to keep calm and follow the guidance of our public health authorities.

“While our country and Sacramento region continues to monitor and address the spread of the coronavirus, the best course of action is to listen to expert public health officials and follow their instructions. These fears are tough on our families throughout our communities, and we understand the impact this has on parents as they figure out work and child care accommodations for their children. But now is not the time for unnecessary panic. We must follow the guidance from our health authorities to make sure we are all safe and prepared.”
