The City of Selma must cooperate with the Governor’s Stay at Home orders issued last week. The City of Selma recognizes that many
daily activities continue to be disrupted. Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of the citizens of Selma, City staff, and their families. At the March 16, 2020 meeting, City Council adopted a resolution proclaiming existence of a local emergency. In response to that action, this release outlines preventative measures being implemented by the City of Selma to protect
the community from the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
We continue to follow the guidelines provided by Fresno County Department of Public Health (FCDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) on matters related to COVID-19. The City of Selma would like to remind you that guidelines are as follows;
As per the President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America, avoid social gatherings of greater than 10 people

Those who are 65 or older, or otherwise have underlying health conditions should avoid public exposure
Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
