🗣Most significant information gained from this evening’s infographic update provided by Mendocino County Public Health:
📍There has been a 10th death in Mendocino County from COVID-19. Adventist Health President Jason Wells confirmed that a Mendocino County community member passed away this week in an Adventist Health facility. Providing a summation of Mendocino County’s COVID-19 related deaths, Wells said, “seven community members have passed away in Sherwood Oaks, one passed away in a Marin County rehabilitation facility, and two have passed away in Adventist Health Hospitals.” Wells asked the community to, “please remember the family and keep them in your thoughts and prayers.”

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
