BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - One case of the Delta COVID-19 variant was confirmed by Butte County Public Health (BCHP) on Tuesday, the health agency said.

Case investigation and contact tracing were completed prior to BCPH learning of the delta variant report.

The county confirmed that the patient was unvaccinated.

Thankfully, the wind is cooperating much better today in northern California. Our weather is still quite hot for this time of year and very dry. There is plenty of haze and smoke from the Fawn Fire overhead, and it isn't leaving yet.
