Lake County, CA (May 28, 2020) – The recent uptick in identified COVID-19 cases understandably has many Lake County residents concerned. As with many threats we face, the antidote to fear is preparation. As Public Health Officer I am asking every County resident to join me in working to limit our collective risk of COVID-19 exposure, by taking precautions.
One week ago, May 21, a Public Health Order (C20-06) took effect mandating face coverings when entering Lake County businesses. Masking has been demonstrated to minimize the risk of people that are not showing symptoms spreading COVID-19 to others, and this is a key element of our strategy to reopen local businesses as quickly as we responsibly can, and keep them open.
If you are able to wear a face covering, please wear one – it can help keep others safe.
