TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Tehama County public health announcing it will be put on the state watch list if it’s coronavirus data doesn't improve in the next 48 hours.

The county would go on the list on Sunday and forced to implement those new restrictions on Wednesday.

Gyms, places of worship, shopping centers, barbershops, hair salons, and all other non-critical offices will have to begin closing all indoor operations on Sunday if the county and state do not see any improvement on the number of cases.

“I feel like we gotta do what we gotta do," said a local Red Bluff resident after hearing the news. "I feel bad for the small business owners. To completely shut down it’s taking its toll on the businesses.”

"It could’ve been avoided like I said if people just took precautions and used common sense," said Ricky Arthur. "Then we can get out of this a lot quicker. If everybody does there part we should get out of this.”

Action News Now spoke with others who were upset that the county is shutting down, and believe the county should focus on other things instead of closing doors.

A barbershop in downtown had a sign on their door saying they had a plan approved to reopen indoor operation, but as new restrictions may creep in, those plans may be thrown out the window.

If Sunday comes and Tehama County has not seen any improvement, then they will be added to the state's watchlist. This means those businesses listed will have three days to make adjustments to their businesses or close their doors.
