City of Ventura

In the City of Ventura, the health and safety of our community is a priority. It was with careful thought and planning that the City proclaimed a local State of Emergency on Sunday March 15, 2020 in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

The declaration allows critical services and operations to continue while reinforcing best practices identified by the CDC and Ventura County Public Health Officials. It is also a tool that enables the City to coordinate an effective response and allow for access to state and federal funds.

The press releases, executive orders, and ordinances issued by the City of Ventura connected with COVID-19 can be found below.
