New information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) on the spread of COVID-19 now suggests that the widespread use of face coverings may help protect our community. Because of this, the Mendocino County Health Officer Dr. Noemi Doohan recommends that everyone who leaves their home for an essential activity wears a face covering, such as a mask, scarf, bandana, or similar garment. Most importantly, everyone should continue to remain home except for when conducting essential activities, and practice social distancing of 6 feet when outside of their homes, in addition to frequent hand washing.
