BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – The Butte County Department of Employment and Social Services organized a Delivery Task Force for individuals who have been told by a medical professional to isolate or quarantine, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Delivery Task Force started Monday, it’s available to people with a confirmed coronavirus diagnosis, individuals who are awaiting coronavirus test results, and individuals advised by a medical professional to isolate or quarantine who have no support system.
“The Delivery Task Force is intended to fill in possible gaps in resources,” Butte County officials announced. “The Delivery Task Force can deliver basic necessities, such as groceries and prescriptions. Payment for items must be made in advance. If payment assistance is needed, staff will assist the individual in contacting a local food bank and will deliver a prepackaged box of food.”
Staff will assist in ensuring all available resources and programs are utilized before referring to the individual to the Delivery Task Force.
Those interested in the delivery service can call 211 or the Butte County COVID-19 Call Center at 552-3050 for more information.
This organization is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
