Message from Plumas County Public Health Agency

"The way Public Health report statistics on Covid-19 is changing with the evolving nature of the pandemic.  As of January 6, 2022, we will post current statistics on our Covid-19 dashboard.  The web dashboard is based on data from the state’s CalREDIE reporting system and includes detailed statistics on cases and rates by age, county region and vaccination status. 

We will no longer be sending case updates or regional maps via e-mail or social media; all relevant COVID-19 statistics will be available on the dashboard on our COVID-19 website.  The dashboard is currently updated every Thursday by 5 pm."

Graduation 2020 Update as of Monday, June 8, 2020

Over the past several days our Governing Board members, principals, leaders of our Public Health Departments and I have received emails with additional questions regarding graduation plans for Friday, June 12th.   In an effort to be consistent with our messaging, I updated the communication I released from last Tuesday, June 2nd that will hopefully provide you additional details specific to plans for a drive-up graduation ceremony. 

Please understand that Plumas Unified School District, Plumas County Public Health and Plumas County Environmental Health are using as much creativity as possible for a memorable graduation celebration.   However, traditional graduations and similar gatherings are not allowed at this time under the State Order.  Therefore, Plumas Unified School District will honor the State requirement for a non-gathering graduation.  Each high school within our four communities have identified plans for a drive-up ceremony.  While families watch from their vehicles, each graduate will be able to participate in many traditional graduation festivities including walking across a stage to receive their diploma.

In addition, it’s important for you to know that each high school has also made plans and will be prepared to make modifications to the graduation ceremony if it is safe and legal to do so; however, the chances of that being the case are not likely to happen.   We receive updates from the state on a frequent basis and will let you know if new information is received that will allow for us to reconsider an in-person social gathering. 

Please know that we understand your requests and the considerations some have shared with us to bring students, families and staff together; however, to do so poses a risk and is not considered safe.   COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the lives and well-being of all people and that’s why gatherings are still prohibited throughout California at this time.

Lastly, the State Health Department released new Stage 3 guidance late last Friday, June 5th.  Many of you saw this reposted at 4:37 pm by the Public Health Department.  This guidance applies primarily to businesses and does not change our situation.  There is still no safe or legal way for gatherings, like graduations, to bring new mixtures of people together.

Respectfully Submitted,
