Press Release: Glenn County COVID-19 Update 3/30/21

Glenn County COVID-19 Update

 

GLENN COUNTY, CA — On Wednesday March 31, 2021, Glenn County will move from Tier 1 (purple) to a less-restrictive Tier 2 (Red) of the State’s COVID-19 Blueprint for a Safer Economy. This shift in tiers allows more businesses and activities to reopen. In addition, the Red Tier allows Glenn County to follow the Small County Framework. In this framework, small counties are subject to all existing Blueprint rules with the exception of new case rate thresholds. The new case rate threshold is 35 cases per 100,000 population for maintaining Red tier status. To find more information on what is open in the Red Tier visit: https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/

 

Vaccination is one of the most important tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning April 1st Californians over the age of 50 will be eligible for vaccination.  Every Californian 16 years of age and over will be eligible for vaccination on April 15th. Over 10,500 doses have been administered to Glenn County residents. Glenn County Public Health has administered 3,135 first doses, 2,211 second doses, and 474 single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines to residents. Details on eligibility may be found by visiting the state vaccine website: https://covid19.ca.gov/vaccines/ . Currently eligible residents interested in the vaccine may register for an appointment with one of the following Glenn County vaccine providers:

  • Optum Serve: (320 3rd St. Orland CA) signup online www.myturn.ca.gov or call (833) 422-4255

    We anticipate more Glenn County providers and pharmacies come on board with MyTurn in the near future. The quick call list is still an option for those who live locally and have not been able to make an appointment. They will be asked to respond quickly when called if a provider has extra doses at the end of their clinic. That survey can be found on our local COVID vaccine site: https://www.countyofglenn.net/dept/health-human-services/public-health/covid-19/covid-19-vaccine-information
