OROVILLE, Calif. - Butte County Public Health (BCPH), in partnership with other Butte County agencies will provide important updates about COVID-19 pandemic.

This week, Butte County health officials announced the county would be moving into a less restrictive tier in the state's color-coded system. Butte County currently has a COVID-19 case rate of 5 cases per 100,000 residents with a 2.6% test positivity rate.

“While this is an exciting move for Butte County, by reopening more business and allowing for increased indoor operations, we also open ourselves to more COVID-19 exposure,” stated Dr. Robert Bernstein, Butte County Health Officer. “This is not the time to let your guard down. The only defense we have against COVID-19 is by utilizing non-pharmaceutical interventions – cover your mouth and nose when in public places, wash your hands, maintain six feet of distance from others, stay home if you are sick and please do not attend gatherings of any size as defined by the State.” Read more
