City of Eureka Cancels or Postpones ‘Non-Essential’ Events and Gatherings

City of Eureka press release:

Due to recent concerns surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and in line with County, State, and Federal guidelines and recommendations, the City of Eureka, in an abundance of caution, will be postponing or canceling non-essential City events, community gatherings, and engagements involving more than 250 people, and in many cases, smaller gatherings, until further notice.

According to the California Department of Public Health, the timely implementation of aggressive strategies that create social distance and those that reduce close contact of people not regularly together, including limiting gatherings, has proven effective at delaying rates of transmission and reducing illness and even death in prior pandemics.

The City encourages residents and visitors to consider doing the same with their planned private events, especially those that serve an at-risk population.

Additionally, the City has implemented the following precautionary measures:

  • Non-regulatory Board and Commission meetings will be canceled until further notice: Art and Culture Commission; Eureka Energy Committee; Economic Development Commission; Open Space Parks and Recreation Commission; Housing Advisory Boards.
  • All non-essential City travel and training has been canceled.
  • All recreation programs including Hoopsters basketball, adult sports and roller skating are canceled until further notice. Please see the review a full list of closures on the City’s web site: ci.eureka.ca.gov

The City of Eureka will continue to operate after school programs and Little Sapling’s daycare and will follow any recommended school closures should they be implemented. Eureka Police Department and Humboldt Bay Fire continue to respond to all calls for service and have developed contingency plans to address any possible staffing issues due to COVID-19. The Sequoia Park Zoo and all other City facilities remain open to the public with increased attention on Social Distancing.

The City of Eureka will continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation and provide updates as warranted. The City is committed to protecting our community and to ensuring the safety of all residents, visitors and City personnel. We strongly encourage residents to avoid non-essential gatherings, practice good hygiene (hand washing etc.), and exercise preventative actions.
