REDDING, Calif. - In a unanimous vote, the Redding City Council declares a state of emergency amid coronavirus concerns.

The declaration allows the city to apply for both federal and state relief. It also allows Redding City Manager Barry Tipping to oversee planning and response efforts.

Redding Mayor Adam McElvain says both he and Tippin made the decision to declare a state of emergency yesterday.

“It gives us a lot more flexibility in dealing with this issue,” said McElvain. “It enables us to react quicker to help keep people safe and healthy in our community.”

Just last week, the Chico City Council also declared a local state of emergency.
