TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. – Action News Now is tracking how our local counties are working to stay ahead of the spread of the coronavirus.

As of Tuesday morning, April 7, Tehama County has one confirmed case. Action News Now spoke with Tehama County Health Services Agency Supervising Public Health Nurse, Michelle Schmidt on how the county is responding to coronavirus.

So far, the results we have received back are 112 negative results and then the one positive result,” Schmidt said. “Today, Mondays, we kind of do our call around to identify how many tests that our providers have done over the last week.”

Action News Now asked Schmidt how the county is doing on supplies for PPE.

“It's an ongoing struggle but we're making it happen as much as we can, so that's pretty much where we're at - at this point, we can reach out to regional and state approach as the need arises,” Schmidt said.

But what is the load like at hospitals and doctors’ offices in Tehama County?

“It's pretty much staying the same at this point, we're not seeing a big surge from that standpoint,” Schmidt said.

We know that there's one positive case, this person-whoever this person was in the community-was there a lot of contact with other people for this person? What was that like? Should a certain group of people get tested or be concerned?

“We continue to do our contact investigation and we've notified the individuals that we have been made aware of that this individual has been in contact with,” Schmidt said. “I think that the more that we do social distancing and we abide by these guidelines I think that will bring a quicker end to it all.”
