UPDATE 5/27/20 — Here’s our latest:
UPDATE 5/26/20 — At last week’s remote press conference Mendocino County Public Health Officer Dr. Noemi Doohan said that her belief that the pandemic would in effect arrive in Mendocino County in late May was panning out. Though the efforts and sacrifices of residents, along with the natural protections of our rural life, have largely spared us, as the virus diffuses through the globe, and with reopening resulting in more human interaction, the cases of COVID are now steadily going up.
Just yesterday one more case was confirmed, and today yet another case of COVID-19 was identified in Mendocino County. Still, Public Health does not have evidence of community spread, and contact tracing is underway. The 22nd case is a woman in the Ukiah Valley between the ages of 50 – 64, and the 23rd case is a man in north county in the same age range, according to updates on the Public Health’s case dashboard.
Here is the statement from Mendocino Public Health:
Mendocino County Public Health confirms the 23rd case of #COVID19 in Mendocino County. The origin of this case is still under investigation, as is yesterday’s 22nd case, while a thorough contact tracing is being conducted by Public Health. Please remember, if we see any evidence of community spread, we will alert you here. No evidence of community spread at this time.Mendocino Public Health via Facebook
