Nevada City, Calif. July 8, 2020 – Since June 1, Nevada County has seen the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases triple, from 42 at the beginning of the month to 116 on June 30. In these first weeks of July, we have seen another sharp increase of 39 cases for a total of 155 cases in Nevada County.
Due to the recent increases in local COVID-19 cases, the County of Nevada Board of Supervisors will be moving back into a virtual Board meeting format for Tuesday’s July 14th meeting.
“Our Board is in agreement that we continue an open and orderly process of governing even with the challenges of coronavirus,” said Board of Supervisors Chair Heidi Hall. “In order to be in compliance with recommendations, it is important to have the flexibility to move to virtual meetings during a sharp increase in positive cases. This is decision is not made lightly and is for the health and safety of staff and constituents and is in alignment with our local cities and town.”
