Covid update: Nov. 10

Against a backdrop of rising rates of new coronavirus cases in the U.S. and locally, Butte County Public Health announced Tuesday (Nov. 9) the local deaths of both a young adult and an elderly resident of a senior living facility.

The younger patient was in their 20s without any underlying health conditions, according to a news release, and died while hospitalized. The other was 75 or older. Public Health did not identify either patient.

Public Health also announced that Butte County is trending toward a return to Tier 2 (red) and more restrictions on activities and businesses—possibly by Nov. 17—due to increased infection rates, particularly among school-age children.
