GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - In Glenn County, it's a ghost town as the second shutdown sets in.

The owner of Hair Tique Salon in Willows, Berdine Chappel, says she's been in business for years but never expected anything like this.

"I don’t think most people do, the second shutdown I kind of expected it just didn’t know when it would happen," she said. "It’s kind of discouraging for the small business owner to keep trying to come back but I understand why we have to do it."

The closure comes as Glenn County has been added to the governor's state watchlist.

Chappel says, "I was shocked that we were one of the areas that spread so quickly. I never expected it for us here."

Laura Medina, a public information officer Glenn County Public Health told Action News Now that the enforcement is being done at the state level.

When Action News Now asked if businesses were following the rule, she said, "To our knowledge, they are our local businesses have been great partners we have had communication with them via email."

But how is it being enforced?

Medina says, "We have had visits from Cal OSHA and other state licensing that have done some educational visits. We do outreach and are taking an educational approach so if we have anyone that calls in with concerns we reach out to those businesses and offer them any resources they may need."

Chapel says the hardest part is not being able to help her clients but she is staying optimistic and is looking forward to the day she can reopen her door again. 

Glenn County Public Health officials say the state has approved a new testing site for Glenn County that will be opening in a few days.
