The Plumas County Public Health Agency announced today, Dec. 16, that there are 22 new COVID cases to report. The last report was 13 cases on Dec. 13.
There are now 84 active cases; 2,092 total cases, and 20 deaths. As cases continue to increase across California, particularly in some areas, the state has reinstated an indoor mask mandate. Plumas County already had the mandate in place.
The bulk of the active cases are in Eastern Plumas. Earlier this week Public Health Director Dana Loomis said that there was an outbreak tied to a gathering. At the time there were six positive cases and one hospitalization attributed to a gathering that took place the weekend after Thanksgiving.
The 22 cases reported today are as follows:
Nine cases for the Southern Region (Quincy/Meadow Valley): Three confirmed on Dec. 14; two confirmed on Dec. 15, and four confirmed today, Dec. 16.
Thirteen cases for the Eastern Region (Graeagle/Portola): Seven confirmed on Dec. 14; and six confirmed today, Dec. 16.
To sign up for a vaccine go to the state’s MyTurn system.
