Rather, Public Health collaborates with Health Care Organizations throughout the County to ensure adequate testing is available. The Plumas County Health Officer provides recommendations to the Health Care Organizations regarding testing at their facilities throughout Plumas County. If an individual is identified as a close contact of someone diagnosed with COVID-19 during a case investigation, Public Health works with the Health Care Organizations in the County to prioritize testing.
