A call to action from the Nevada County executive offices as well as the community regarding personal behaviors and shopping going into the Thanksgiving holiday. At Tuesday’s update webinar put on by the county, representatives from the county, medical, education, and business sectors addressed the need to alter behaviors in order to reduce the spike in COVID cases in the county. Heath and Human Services Director Ryan Gruver laid out the biggest problem.
Gruver also clearly compared the difference in business activities since moving back to the most restrictive Tier regarding infection spread. He started with where we were before the re-assignment.
He followed with a summary of what is now allowable.
Co-owner of Sierra Theaters, Michael LaMarca, plead with attendees to change behavior so that businesses have a chance to open again before Christmas.
County Assistant Executive Officer, Mali Dyck, presented a call to action to help change behaviors.
President and CEO of Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, Dr. Brian Evans, reported the hospital is good shape, but could be impacted if the spread is not controlled, and County Superintendent of Schools Scott Lay, said schools are open, but could be forced into total distance education if the situation does not improve.
The second call to action is to shop local in order to help negate the impact of the increased restrictions so that businesses have a fighting chance to remain open going into 2021.
