Lassen County Reopens After Small Virus Outbreak

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Lassen County had been the first to backtrack on its reopening plan, but has reversed itself again and decided to allow dining in restaurants and shopping in stores. Officials said it successfully mitigated its first small coronavirus outbreak. Lassen County was one of only two counties without a confirmed case until last week. Health department workers tracked down four cases connected to the original patient and county moved to restrict business. The county health officer on Thursday rescinded his previous order to restrict restaurants to serving takeout and stores to curbside pickup.
