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.
