County Health Officer Dr. Dean Kelaita noted that on Monday, Calaveras was put on the County Monitoring List, which means it must roll back business operations beginning Thursday at 1 a.m. as we reported here.

He stresses that residents can turn around the setback by committing to doing what works to prevent the infection spread such as practicing physical distancing, wearing a face covering, getting tested, washing your hands often, staying home if you are sick, and avoiding any gatherings where physical distancing and masking is not being followed.
