205 SOUTH STREET, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

UPDATE 2:44 p.m.

Mendocino County Public Health identified the day care center where the outbreak took place in the following statement on their Facebook:

The owner of the Dandy Lion Cub Daycare in Fort Bragg has been 100% upfront and proactive since first notified of a positive case related to their facility. Since then, they have gone above and beyond by reaching out to their families, and by working extremely cooperatively with Mendocino County Public Health in effort to control the spread. Their facility has been closed since October 15th, and they are not opening until everything has been sanitized and until there are no further positives.

Mendocino County Public Health commends the Dandy Lion Cub Daycare for proving to be a valuable partner in slowing the spread of COVID-19 in our county. NO business is immune to this virus, so what truly matters is how a business responds to a positive case when it happens. We urge all businesses in Mendocino County to imitate the exemplary actions of the Dandy Lion Cub Daycare: reach out to Public Health if you are concerned about a case at your place of business, and follow Public Health protocols closely to combat the spread.

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.
