• The Rural Association of Northern California Health Officers (RANCHO) has asked the California Department of Public Health to allow counties to make their own decisions on whether restaurants can resume indoor dining with extensive modifications. The health officers stated that creating outdoor dining space, particularly in very hot counties like Shasta, is often impossible or impractical. Shasta County’s main cause of COVID transmission is not restaurants, and moving dining to outdoor settings does not appear to be an important public health strategy for limiting transmission at this time, the health officers said.
