California is still a hot coronavirus state. Pretty definitely, in the beginning we were not all protecting each other by masking and social distancing. We’re pleased to see that seems to have improved a great deal up here over the last several weeks.

The county reported a total of 20 cases with our first COVID-19 death on our Hill. We hope it’s the last.

So, please, regardless of politics, let’s all defeat this virus together by wearing masks whenever we’re in public and keeping at least six-foot distance as much as possible. The sooner we bat this thing down, the sooner we can return to our lives as we knew them and can have them again.

Our thanks to our Advertisers whom we urge you all to support, to our Members both on and off our Hill, and to all our Readers for keeping the Town Crier serving our community during these difficult times.
