COVID-19 (coronavirus) Information and Updates

COVID-19 Picture

The City of Scotts Valley continues to work closely with Santa Cruz County Public Health Officials to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), preserve the health of our community and safely move into the States stages

Information related to COVID-19 and reopening is rapidly changing. 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.

The best source of information on COVID-19 is the County’s webpage:

Or text “COVID19” to 211211 or call 2-1-1 for latest updates.

To help assist the community in answering questions about the COVID-19 outbreak, the County of Santa Cruz has established a call center to help direct questions to the proper channels. If you have questions, please call (831) 454- 4242 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday-Friday.

If you are receiving information elsewhere, please ensure it is trusted and reliable. Regrettably, misinformation is circulating.

The City has vigorous hygiene and personal health guidelines in place for City employees and public works 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.
