“If we are unsuccessful in addressing and stopping upward trends in any one of those data areas, we may have to act locally in some way to pull back,” Alsop said.

“For now, we are okay. But we are concerned in the future if cases increase, we need to have that capacity,” Matt Constantine, the director of Kern County Public Health, said.

That is the reason they’re approaching nearby occupants to do their part as well.

Also, to recollect that this war is a long way from being finished.

“All residents of this county, please, please continue to adhere to public health guidance as you go about your lives,” Alsop said.
