Nevada County issues coronavirus orders

“Today, April 7, 2020, in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to protect vulnerable individuals and to help prevent the local healthcare system from being overwhelmed, the Nevada County Health Officer, Dr. Ken Cutler, has issued two new separate, but related orders:

“The first order is for self-isolation of anyone diagnosed with or showing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 within 14 days of being in close contact with a person who was diagnosed with COVID-19. Diagnosis can be made by a physician or a laboratory confirmation

“The second order is for the self-quarantine of anyone exposed to an individual diagnosed with COVID-19. For additional information on the statewide Stay-at-Home Order and recommendations to keep you and your family safer, please visit Nevada County’s coronavirus webpage at

  1. Another Order that needs to be issued- Vote by mail. After what the Republicans made the people of the state of Wisconsin do on Tuesday, we don’t need to make a decision on whether to die in order to vote. Vote by mail-
    (could you vote for any party’s candidate who says it’s ok to go out in the middle of a pandemic and expose yourself to hundreds of people at a polling place? And you may die as result? ) Right now, November doesn’t seem that far off.
