Coronavirus Updates

All members of the community are encouraged to consider how personal behavior can help move Nevada County to the next tier ranking.  Individual action will lead to collective mitigation that will shift the county’s tier status and our collective behavior this weekend matters. Wearing a mask, maintaining physical distance, washing your hands and getting tested can help move Nevada County from Tier 2 to Tier 3 and support decreased modifications to business operations.
