Planning & Community Development Services Agency - COVID-19 Response
The County of Glenn is currently monitoring the level of risk of COVID-19 to the public. County personnel are working daily to protect our community.
We urge our individuals to follow Local, State and Federal recommendations including regular hand washing, staying home if you are feeling ill, maintaining social distancing, and calling your health practitioner if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (fever, fatigue, cough, and headaches/body aches).
Although there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Glenn County (as of March 18, 2020), the Planning & Community Development Services Agency (PCDSA) interacts with citizens from all over Northern California on a regular basis where there confirmed cases of COVID 19.
