Glenn County to Close Additional Business Sectors

California Department of Public Health has issued additional closures for Glenn County and other counties with high rates of COVID-19.  The following sectors must close or modify services to outdoor operations due to increased transmission of the COVID-19 in our community. The closures or modifications are effective at 12:01 a.m. July 14, 2020, and are in effect until further notice. 

 Businesses & Sectors that must modify to outdoor operations or close:

  • Personal care services to include hair salons, barbershops, tattoo, massage, nails, waxing etc.
  • Gyms and fitness centers
  • Places of Worship
  • Malls
  • Offices for non-critical infrastructure sectors as defined at https://covid19.ca.gov/

Glenn County was not provided advance notice from the State regarding the additional business sector modifications and closures. We understand the difficulty in implementing these measures on such short notice. We ask for patience from our community as our businesses adapt to the rapidly changing requirements.

Closures and modifications to outdoor only operations put into effect on July 1, 2020, remain in effect in Glenn County and are now statewide for restaurants, wineries, bars, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, museums, zoos, and cardrooms.

 

The State has directed Glenn County Public Health to put these measures in effect as the result of being on the COVID-19 Monitoring List. Glenn County is unable to meet three of the six metrics the State has established including new case rate, test positivity rate, and number of daily tests over the past 14 day period. 


Thirty-five Glenn County residents are currently positive for COVID-19, thirty are isolated at home and five are hospitalized. One hundred and seventy-six Glenn County residents have contracted COVID-19 since March, one hundred and forty-one people have since recovered.
