Most people who get COVID-19 will be able to recover at home. CDC has directions for people who are recovering at home and their caregivers, including:
However, some people may need emergency medical attention. Watch for symptoms and learn when to seek emergency medical attention.
If you are asymptomatic and have not been identified as having had "close contact" with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, then attending a mass testing event is appropriate. If there is not a mass testing event then contact a Health Care Facility to be screened. Anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms should contact their health care provider immediately, and follow their medical provider’s recommendations for testing and treatment.
Plumas County Public Health conducts a case investigation and does contact tracing with all residents who test positive. If someone is identified as having "close contact" with someone who has tested positive, then the "close contact" will be scheduled by Public Health to be tested.
A "close contact" is an individual who has had approximately 15 minutes or more of contact within 6 feet without both people wearing a mask.
If you traveled outside of the county, or if someone outside of the county traveled to see you inside of Plumas County and you were informed that you had close contact with a positive COVID-19 individual, please contact the Plumas County Public Health Agency Clinic at (530) 283-6300 for further instructions.
You are more likely to be infected with coronavirus if:
You can reduce the risk to yourself and others by:
No. The Health Care Facility may bill your insurance, but all tests are FREE to the patient.
Yes, it is possible. You may test negative if the sample was collected early in your infection and test positive later during your illness. You could also be exposed to COVID-19 after the test and get infected then. Even if you test negative, you still should take steps to protect yourself and others.
Antibody tests for COVID-19 are available through healthcare providers and laboratories. Check with your healthcare provider to see if they offer antibody tests and whether you should get one. A positive test result shows you might have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such as the one that causes the common cold. Having antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 might provide protection from getting infected with the virus again. If it does, we do not know how much protection the antibodies might provide or how long this protection might last. You should continue to protect yourself and others since you could get infected with the virus again.
If you test negative, you might not have ever had COVID-19. Talk with your healthcare provider about your test result and the type of test you took to understand what your result means. Regardless of whether you test positive or negative, the results do not confirm whether or not you are able to spread the virus that causes COVID-19. Until we know more, continue to take steps to protect yourself and others.
Vaccination is recommended for people who have had COVID because scientific studies show that the immunity from vaccination is stronger and lasts longer than the immunity from having the disease. Vaccination also appears to give more protection against new variants of the virus.
Getting fully vaccinated with either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines is your best protection against severe COVID, hospitalization, and death from all strains of the virus. In fact, being vaccinated helps stop the virus from developing new strains. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine appears to be less effective against new variants and we no longer recommend it for most people.
The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are made with similar technology and provide similar high levels of protection against COVID. These vaccines require two doses several weeks apart.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is made with older technology and was designed to require only one dose. Recent studies suggest it is less effective against new strains of the coronavirus. Rare, but potentially serious, side effects have also been linked to this vaccine. For this reason, the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine is recommended for most people.
The Covid-19 vaccines available in the United States have been tested in clinical studies of tens of thousands of people and in real-world observational studies of millions of people. We know from these studies that the available vaccines are almost 100% effective in preventing hospitalization and death from Covid, and that they are also highly effective in preventing most Covid disease and new infections.
The safety and effectiveness of the vaccines is constantly being evaluated. But it’s already clear, after 100s of millions of doses, that it’s far safer to be vaccinated than to risk getting Covid, which can be deadly even to young people.
No. It means that the risk of getting sick from Covid is 95% lower for a vaccinated person compared to an unvaccinated person. The actual risk depends on where you live and the kind of things you do, but for a fully vaccinated person it is much less than 5%.
Yes. Boosters are now recommended after 6 months for all fully-vaccinated people 16 and older. This is because the vaccines' protection appears to decrease over time, especially for new coronavirus variants.
When questions come up about illnesses that might be vaccine related, they are investigated and the public is given detailed information about the risks of taking the vaccine compared to the risks of getting COVID-19.
The most common side effects are similar to the ones many people have from other vaccines: pain or tenderness at the site of the shot and tiredness and flu-like symptoms about a day later.
Some people have developed severe allergic reactions after getting a Covid-19 vaccine. These reactions are rare (less than 5 per million). For your safety, you will be asked about your history of allergy before you are given a vaccine and you will be observed for up to 30 minutes afterward to be sure you are okay. In the unlikely event that you do have a reaction, emergency medical providers will be on site to treat you immediately.
So far, no other serious side effects have been definitively linked to the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines.
A small number of children and adolescents who got Pfizer or Moderna vaccines have developed inflammations of the heart. This condition is very rare and is still under investigation, but it does not appear to be more common in vaccinated people. Blood clots have been found in some women under age 50 who were given the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The risk of developing this condition as a result of COVID is greater than the risk associated with vaccination, but in the interest of safety, we no longer recommend the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for women younger than 50.
It’s true that these vaccines were developed a lot more quickly than traditional vaccines, but the development wasn’t rushed. Several factors made it possible. Scientists already knew a lot about coronaviruses because they cause other diseases. They also started working on the mRNA technology used in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines more than 10 years ago with the goal of using it to develop vaccines for new diseases quickly in an emergency. Once the COVID vaccines were developed, researchers went through all the usual steps of testing them but saved time by doing them in parallel instead of one after the other.
No. It means that the risk of getting sick from COVID is 95% lower for a vaccinated person compared to an unvaccinated person. The actual risk depends on where you live and the kind of things you do, but for a fully vaccinated person, it is much less than 5%.

Leeches are native residents of our local lakes. They are a common food for fish and waterfowl and an important part of the natural food web in our local area.
While certainly unpleasant, leeches in our region are not known to transmit human diseases, and are generally not a public health concern. Be careful removing leeches from the skin. If their mouth-parts are left in the skin, they may cause irritation or infection.
Leeches are typically found in shallow, protected water, among aquatic plants, or under stones, logs, and other debris. Shallow areas along the edge of the lakes and ponds are an ideal habitat.
Summertime means more leeches. Leeches prefer shallow, protected areas of lakes. Swimming in deeper waters and in areas free of plants and debris will reduce the likelihood of a leech finding you.
Be sure to clean, disinfect, and bandage leech bites to prevent infection as you would any other cut. A leech bite may ooze for several hours after the leech is removed. This is caused by compounds present in leech saliva that prevent blood from clotting. There may also be irritation or itching after a bite, similar to the allergic reaction some people have to mosquito bites. If the wound doesn’t heal properly, contact your healthcare provider.
There is no practical way to control leeches in natural waters. Chemical control measures that would reduce leech populations will also harm other beneficial aquatic animals including fish. Because leeches like to conceal themselves under sticks, stones, and other debris, swimming in areas free of such material is the best way to help reduce human/leech encounters.
Individuals receiving health care services provided by or paid for by a Plumas County Department or Agency. Additionally, the health information of County Employees who are enrolled in the County Health Plan are protected, as is the health information of deceased individuals whose health care services were paid for or provided by the County.
The NPP is the document that informs patients or clients about their privacy rights and our privacy practices. The NPP is posted in all County facilities providing healthcare services, is available on the County website, and is also given to individuals being seen by a County health care provider, and anyone else who asks for it.
Any information about the health of an individual, which identifies or can be used to identify the individual is confidential. This includes information that relates to the physical, mental, or emotional health or condition of an individual and the provision of, or payment for, health care of the individual. HIPAA applies to information communicated orally and in writing; it also applies to information stored in hard copy or electronically (on a computer, server, floppy drive, CD, or PDA) and information being sent by e-mail.
If you work for the County you may see confidential information. Information Technology employees and fiscal employees may not see patients or clients but they will see confidential information about them. If you walk through patient or client care areas on your way to your office, you may see individuals utilizing County services. HIPAA says you must keep this information confidential. That means if you see a friend or neighbor at the County as a client or patient, you must not disclose that to anyone else - not to co-workers, other friends, your family, or friends or family of the individual you saw.
HIPAA allows information to be used or disclosed when you have written, specific authorization from the individual OR for treatment, payment, or health care operations. Without written authorization, you may share information and discuss clients with co-workers ONLY if your co-worker needs to know the information to successfully perform his/her job, or the disclosure is made while you are officially conducting a medical review.
Individuals who believe the County has failed to handle health information in accordance with HIPAA may file complaints with the County or with the Office of Civil Rights. The Notice of Privacy Practice contains addresses and telephone numbers where individuals may obtain more information or file complaints; it is available on the County website in both English and Spanish.

OR In “AP” and “GA” agricultural zones Title 9 Planning and Zoning, Chapter 2 Zoning, Article 44 Commercial Social Event, Limited applies where administrative use permit (19 or fewer events per year with no more than 250 guests) or special use permit (20+ events per year) standards are defined to regulate the operation of a limited commercial social event while protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the community.
Generally, parcel zoned “AP” or Agricultural Preserve are in Williamson Act Contract, but not always. Call the Planning Department to inquire. The purpose of the AP zone is to provide land use regulations consistent with the intent of the Plumas County Williamson Act program for agricultural preserves. The Williamson Act, also known as the California Land Conservation Act of 1965, enables local governments to enter into contracts with private landowners for the purpose of restricting specific parcels of land to agricultural or related open space use. In return, landowners receive property tax assessments which are much lower than normal because they are based upon farming and open space uses as opposed to full market value.
Camping is permitted on private land (non-commercial/not a campground) for no more than 120 days in a calendar year if all aspects of the County health regulations are met and subject to the concurrence of the property owner.

Snow plowing equipment is designed to shear snow from the width of the road and distribute it to the side of the road in the form of a berm. The equipment would have to slow down to change the angle of the plow in an attempt to carry the snow past your driveway and the result will be taller berms. Additionally, a portion of the snow being pushed will fall into the center of the road creating additional road hazards.
Tree limbs that can reach vehicles when laden with snow cause the travel way to narrow, resulting in roadway hazards. Also, as the snow falls from these limbs, it creates concentrations of ice pack. By trimming these limbs, it reduces risks to the public.
If the Agency agrees that a speed zone is justified, a recommendation is presented to theBoard of Supervisors. Should the Board approve the zone, signs are posted and enforcement can begin. Where local speed limits are to be enforced by radar or other electronic devices (such as laser meters), the studies must be no more than seven years old.

All vaccines and medication come with some amount of risk, just as all diseases present risk. Parents should weigh the risk vs. benefit.
The risk of pneumonia from measles: 6 in 100
The risk of death from measles: 2 in 1,000
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resource Services Administration acknowledges that no vaccine, medication, medical procedure, or device is completely without risk. It administers compensation under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act as a means to compensate families and individuals who have experienced adverse events from vaccines.
No. Minute amounts of aluminum salts, less than from breastfeeding or formula feeding, are in some vaccine formulations as an adjuvant to enhance the immune response.
Question: I have heard about the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS). The CDC states: "Limitations of passive surveillance systems include variability in reporting standards, reporter bias and significant under-reporting of events." Does this mean there are more dangers from vaccines than are being reported to VAERS?
No vaccine is 100% effective. Most childhood vaccines are effective in 85-95% of recipients. In the US and Plumas County, more people are vaccinated than are not, though that could change.
No. California law allows for medical and personal belief exemptions to its student immunization requirement. Schools have standardized procedures for parents and guardians who request a personal beliefs exemption. (9) See your school nurse if you have any questions.
