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.
