GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - Triple digits are expected for most of Northern California this week, so where is a person to go if they don't have access to air conditioning? Glenn County is opening two cooling centers in Orland and Willows to provide some relief.

The cooling centers are located at:

  • 333 Mill St., Orland Library, it will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Monday through Friday)
  • 240 N. Villa Ave., Willows, it will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Monday through Friday)

Glenn County leaders say with the coronavirus pandemic, it has limited the number of cooling centers they have been able to open.

People who enter the cooling centers will be asked to keep six feet apart from others and wear a mask.

There will be increased hygiene during the operation of the cooling centers.

Glenn County leaders are asking people if they feel sick not to come to one of the cooling centers, to mitigate possible coronavirus exposure.

Masks will also be provided if someone does not have one on hand.

The cooling centers will not be giving out snacks or water during the center's operation.

Centers will be operational throughout the summer season.

The City of Orland has approved the city pool to reopen this week, to give people more options for cooling off.
