Many parts of the state are still grappling with very significant numbers of COVID-19 cases. There contines to be problems with testing and getting results quickly, though we’ve entered the sixth month of the pandemic.

Even in places like Trinity County with relatively few cases, there’s cause for concern.

 

In today’s show, we’ll learn how to interpret coronavirus cases in the state, including the status of evictions in California, and if you need food or rental assistance, where to find it.

 

If you have questions or comments, leave them on our message line at (530) 433-9216 – or head over to mynspr.org.
