GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - Glenn County has been removed from California's COVID-19 monitoring list after it met the state's metrics for three days.
The number of daily positive cases has decreased as well as the overall test positivity rate, according to health officials. In addition, the number of tests conducted daily has increased which led the county to getting off the monitoring list.
"Every resident played a part in accomplishing this goal of decreasing the spread of disease," said Jared Garrison, Glenn County Health Officer. "Through increased testing to identify and contain this disease, to social distancing, our residents have done what was necessary to slow disease transmission."
Now, Glenn County will enter a 14-day period at which time the metrics cannot go outside the parameters set by the state for more than three consecutive days.
