The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office is lifting all evacuation orders in the following areas. If you live in these areas, you can return home now. There will be more law enforcement personnel in your neighborhood to keep you safe. You do not need to check in with anyone and you do not need a law enforcement escort. If you are coming from the south, you’ll need to access your neighborhood via the Highway 101 corridor because Highway 12 is still closed near Glen Ellen.

The following road closure is still in effect:

The following roads are now open:
- Los Alamos Road at Scotland Drive
