Super Bowl Safety
Watching the big game on Sunday? Don't fumble on COVID.
Let’s keep the Super Bowl from becoming a Super Spreader event. Celebrate safely, don’t mix households, and keep COVID on the sidelines.
Educators are getting their first doses in Nevada County
This week in Truckee, teachers from Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District got their first dose of vaccine. This was a partnership between Nevada County Public Health, Tahoe Forest Hospital, and Placer County Public Health. Last week, educators in Western Nevada County got their first dose, in partnership with Nevada County Superintendent of Schools.
We recognize the great value of vaccinating school staff. Doing so helps to protect teachers and staff, giving them peace of mind about their own health in the workplace. It also helps to prevent outbreaks in these congregate settings, supports children in either remaining or returning to the classroom where the best learning takes place and where children have critical social interactions, and it also helps parents remain in the workplace. Data tells us that women, in particular, have been negatively impacted by schools closing, with many forced to leave the workplace and stay home because there is no school for their children and they cannot afford childcare. These vaccinations help keep teachers safe, children engaged and parents employed.
New resource: Live Thursday vaccine updates
YubaNet will be hosting weekly, short webinars every Thursday at noon to provide updates on COVID-19 and vaccine distribution in Nevada County. Health officials will provide real-time updates on the availability of the vaccine, the county’s status in the state’s tier system and what to expect in the coming week.
