Mendocino County COVID-19 Health Update



Mendocino County Public Health Officer Dr. Noemi Doohan and health care local providers, including Rod Grainger from Long Valley Health Center, provide a COVID-19 update to the public.

According to Noemi Doohan, guidances have been made public are up on the Mendocino County website but her summary is as follows:

According to the CDC, there is a 48 hour asymptomatic period before a person gets sick when they can spread COVID-19. This is new news as it was previously held that there was no asymptomatic spread.

When the public goes out to do essential activities, they should wear a facial covering. This is meant to protect others from the wearer spreading the disease. This is meant to work in conjunction with sheltering in place and social distancing. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/Home/Components/News/News/4069/3242


Essential businesses should post their guidance on their walls about how they enforce social distancing in their essential businesses.

The Public Health Department does not do testing. Testing is facilitated through health care partners. A currier drives the test sample to a public health lab in Santa Rosa to get expedited results.
