NVCF funds COVID-19 testing

In the wake of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the North Valley Community Foundation has donated $250,000 to the Butte County Public Health Department to purchase lab equipment for testing.

According to a press release, the foundation has set up a new funding mechanism—the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Rapid Response Fund—to help organizations prepare, respond rapidly and deploy resources in Butte, Glenn, Tehama and Colusa counties. A specific focus going forward will be on food security and health care for seniors, children and those experiencing homelessness.

“Equipping the Public Health lab with COVID-19 testing capabilities will expedite lab turnaround times for Butte County,” said Public Health Director Danette York (pictured) in a press release. “We are grateful to NVCF for this timely and generous donation.”
