It seems like the confirmed COVID cases come in waves. Yesterday the Plumas County Public Health Agency announced case No. 46, after an eight-day hiatus, and today, Sept. 11, cases Nos. 47 and 48 are announced.
The agency received notification of two positive COVID-19 test results — one for a resident in the Eastern region (Portola/ Graeagle area) which is No. 47, a close contact of No. 46 (reported yesterday). The individual has no symptoms.
The other positive resident in the Southern region (American Valley/Quincy area) is No. 48. It appears this individual may have contracted COVID-19 as a result of having to evacuate to a county outside of Plumas; the individual has no symptoms.
The contact tracing investigation is underway in both cases. If an exposed resident is identified during the investigation, the resident will be contacted by a member of the Public Health COVID-19 Response Team for further screening.
Of the 48 cases, 45 are considered recovered and three are active.
