GLENN COUNTY, Calif. – As more California counties reopen, state health officials are also monitoring counties that aren’t meeting specific targets related to curbing coronavirus cases.

There are three different factors that can cause a county to be placed on the state’s Coronavirus watch list: elevated disease transmission, increasing hospitalization, and limited hospital capacity.

Glenn County was added to the state’s coronavirus watch list Monday, June 29. The list currently includes a total of 19 counties across the state.

The weather over northern California has finally calmed substantially. Although it would be fantastic to have valley rain and mountain snow, we have some exceptional weather ahead for the end of October and beginning of November.
