If you do stop, please make sure to adhere to COVID-19 social distancing protocols. Residents should remain in their cars and are asked to wear a face covering.

All other areas under evacuation order are still closed.  We will send an alert for each area as it re-opens. Continue to follow the instructions of first responders in the area and make sure to listen for hi-lo sirens. Use extreme caution when around the burned areas that may be present. The burn area is under a Public Health Order due to health hazards created by the fire.
The public is reminded to stay vigilant on current fire conditions. Please continue to adhere to road closures and any evacuation warnings. A reminder to drive slowly and yield to emergency personnel in the area.
