REDDING, Calif. - The Redding City Council voted unanimously on March 17 to declare of state of emergency due to coronavirus concerns. 

This allows the city to apply for federal and state relief. 

This declaration also allows City Manager Barry Tippin to oversee planning and response efforts. 

"It gives us a lot more flexibility in dealing with this issue and ables us to react quickly to help keep people safe and healthy in our community," says Mayor Adam McElvain.

Council members say they made the decision to declare the emergency on Monday.
