NSPR’s Marc Albert checked in with Lassen County recently about a decision last week to backpedal reopening after the county – which for months had zero confirmed cases of COVID-19 – had five residents test positive in a relatively short time.
The temporary return to the county’s first phase was going to last seven days, but in just a couple, the county pivoted again, returning to Phase 2.
To learn more, Marc spoke with Barbara Longo, Lassen County’s director of Health and Social Services. Here are highlights from their conversation. You can also listen at the top of the page.
