ORLAND, Calif. – Glenn County is terminating its local emergency that was declared over a year ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This shift comes as Glenn County has seen a decline in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

County officials said they are now focusing on vaccinating residents.

On March 16, the Glenn County Administrative Officer proclaimed the local emergency. Since then, the employees of Glenn County have worked to implement guidelines from the California Department of Public Health in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Glenn County and its residents participated in stay-at-home order, testing, opening and closing of the local economy. 43.3% of eligible residents have received at least one dose of a vaccine, and 36.3% of the eligible residents have been fully vaccinated.

The State of California announced that on June 15, 2021, all sectors listed in the Blueprint Activities and Business Tiers may return to usual operations with limited exceptions for “Mega Events.”

Health officials are warning that this does not mean that the threat of the virus and virus variants are not still present. What is believed is that the ability to manage the care for those infected will not risk the stability of the local health system. Because of this information, Glenn County Administrative Officer is proclaiming an end to the local emergency pursuant to Government Code section 8630, et. seq.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
