COVID-19 (coronavirus) Information and Updates

The City of Scotts Valley is closely working with the Santa Cruz County Public Health Officials to contain the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and preserve the health of our community. The number of confirmed cases in Santa Cruz County continues to rise and Scotts Valley is following the lead of our Public Health Officials to mitigate the impacts of the virus while also preserving essential services to the public. The COVID-19 outbreak is rapidly changing, sometimes daily, and we encourage the community to stay abreast of the latest advisements on social distancing.

The City has vigorous hygiene and personal health guidelines in place for City employees and public work sites. We have mandated regular cleaning and sanitizing and are strictly enforcing no tolerance of illness in the workplace.

The community is encouraged to use alternate means of contacting City Hall, by phone or email, rather than visiting in-person visits. City Department contact information can be found on the main page: As a reminder we have limited, essential staff in City offices, in adherence to the Shelter-in-Place order.

Information is rapidly developing in response to COVID-19. We make every effort to keep this page up to date with the most current information, but it should not be considered exhaustive. Please continue to utilize the following link to County and State issued information.
