Clark reported COVID-19 testing was to begin this day in Loyalton and had 28 people registered so far with capabilities of doing onsite registration if needed. She said medical personnel from Oakland was stranded due to riots, so they had to secure their own health professionals to help with the testing, and had to go through special training that morning, adding tests are now 97% accurate for positive. Clark stated they would be announcing they have one positive case and one recovered case and those that were quarantined will be lifted on June 5th.
Planning Director Tim Beals spoke as part of the County Office of Emergency Services stating all barricades have been lifted and removed. He added that some advisory signs will be going up, but park closures will be removed. The social distancing signs were discussed. Supervisor Sharon Dryden didn't feel they were effective at all and have been getting vandalized and restaurant owners are stating the signs don’t give off a warm welcome. Clark stated they are moving out of a fear-based approach and if the public is wanting them removed, she was ok with them coming down. Beals will start removing them.
