If you’re planning to have your own Picnic Day celebration, the following tips can help make it a fun and safe event.
- Host your event remotely to limit exposure to COVID-19.
- Yolo County strongly discourages any indoor gatherings with members of different households. If you must gather, please review the new state gathering guidance that will begin on April 15, 2021.
