BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County supervisors have voted to keep the local disaster proclamation in regards to the pandemic.
There were several people at the meeting who brought signs saying "we will not comply" and "say no to mandatory vaccines."
Those people were against the board extending the proclamation.
“Typically those disasters have to be renewed but since the state has said this is an emergency we're still an emergency,” said Debra Lucero. “We're still in emergency response. We're still trying to all figure this out."
"So we're doing all of this for 12 deaths per month? There's no emergency for that," said an unidentified man.
The county administrative officer said keeping this proclamation does not have an impact on mask or vaccine mandates.
Supervisors Lucero, Teeter and Ritter voted to keep the proclamation while Connelly and Kimmelshue voted to end it.
