WILLOWS, Calif. -- The Board of Supervisors in Glenn County held meeting and approved a letter that will be sent to Gov. Gavin Newsom requesting to begin the dialogue on reopening nonessential businesses.

The motion passed four to one in support of sending the letter to Board Chair Lee McDaniel.

Board supervisors, along with Glenn County Sheriff Richard Warren, were adamant in clarifying that this letter asks the governor to consider placing the reopening plans in the hands of local government leaders.

This letter will be passed along five other Northern California counties. Butte, Sutter, Yuba, Colusa, and Tehama counties are the others.

We're waiting on confirmation of who also approves of the letter.

Supervisors and glenn county community members want to see businesses that closed down to re-open, but there's a few contingencies and concerns.

Consumers want to see how businesses would adjust to public health recommendations.

One concern is that if nonessential businesses reopen too soon, an increase in potential exposure comes into play.

Glenn County is especially at risk because of the I-5 freeway. Thousands of people travel and could contribute to the spread.

The next Board of Supervisors meeting is on May 5th.

We have beautiful weather around northern California right now, but it will get a lot more unsettled this weekend as a storm moves overhead. We can expect gusty wind, a big cooldown, and areas of light to moderate rain.
