BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County Public Health (BCPH) is giving an update on Covid-19 changes. 

Monday, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced 41 California counties would be moved to the most restrictive tier of the state's Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

Butte County Public Health Department said in the press conference, schools that were already open may remain open in the purple tier. But they cannot expand their classroom sizes or add students. All colleges will switch to virtual learning, if they have not already.

The measures announced Monday will impose more restrictions on businesses across most of the state. Health officials say the troubling rise in cases in November has come at a faster pace than a spike in mid-June and could quickly surpass the peak of the hospitalizations at the time.
