Glenn County Exits the COVID Monitoring List

Glenn County is off the COVID Monitoring List

 

Glenn County has met the State of California metrics for COVID-19 for three days and has been removed from the State’s Monitoring List. The number of daily positive cases has decreased as well as the overall test positivity rate. In addition, the number of tests conducted daily has increased which has led the County to exiting the State’s Monitoring List.

 

“Every resident played a part in accomplishing this goal of decreasing the spread of disease. Through increased testing to identify and contain this disease, to social distancing, our residents have done what was necessary to slow disease transmission,” said Jared Garrison, Glenn County Health Officer.

 

Glenn County will now enter a 14 day period at which time the metrics cannot go outside the parameters set by the State for more than 3 consecutive days.  Additional guidance on reopening economic and societal reopening is expected to be provided by the State on Friday. Until the State guidance is received, no changes to modified business operations may occur.

 

Glenn County has 7 residents currently positive for COVID-19, 424 residents have recovered, and 3 residents have passed away.

It is important that we all continue healthy behaviors to limit the spread of disease:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Maintain social distancing of at least six feet
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Limit non-essential travel
  • Avoid gatherings
  • Avoid sick people
  • Wear a face covering when in public or common spaces
