** POSTPONED **
Due to the heightened concern about community spread of the coronavirus, the California Governor’s Executive Order and direction from governmental agencies, including the City of Petaluma, we have decided to postpone the Petaluma Walking Day event to a future date. The health and well-being of our community is our primary concern, and at the moment we are focused on supporting our community and our partners to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. We will provide an update on Walking Day when a new date is determined. Please take the necessary precautions to support your health and the health of your co-workers, family and neighbors.
