The Court is continuously monitoring the guidance from the President, the Governor, the Chief Justice, and the Yolo County Department of Health, and will modify or revoke these orders based on that guidance. Yolo County’s shelter-in-place order has been extended to May 1st, and it seems likely that these orders will remain until at least then. However, the Court may modify them before then, so please continue to monitor the Court’s website for changes.
