OROVILLE, Calif. - Butte County Sheriff officials announce that visitation to the Butte County Jail is suspended as of Saturday, March 21 until further notice due to the confirmation of the first coronavirus case in Butte County.

A small trough of low pressure moved over the Pacific Northwest on this first day of autumn, and it brought more gusty wind and an improvement to the air quality for most of us. The breezes will continue through the week, and other changes are coming soon.
