COVID-19 Positive Case Identified at Ukiah Tire Shop


The following is a press release issued by Mendocino County Public Health:

The Mendocino County COVID-19 Department Operations Center has confirmed a positive
COVID-19 case at the following location:

Norcal Tires
3201 N. State St, Ukiah

Members of the public who visited this facility between July 5 – July 12, 2021, may have been exposed to COVID-19, and are advised to seek COVID-19 testing if unvaccinated, or seek testing if exhibiting symptoms while vaccinated.

Public Health is prepared for the possibility of outbreaks due to increased close contact during the summer months. Public Health still urges members of the public to exercise their best judgment when making decisions that might affect their health and the health of the community. We appreciate the cooperation of the above local businesses to find those who could be exposed, and Public Health only publishes their names when we are unable to specifically identify everyone in the public who could have been exposed.

Public Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren would like to emphasize the importance of staying home
from work when exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19. Common symptoms are fever, cough,
and shortness of breath. Other symptoms may include chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, fatigue, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or new loss of taste or smell.

We ask that the community stay vigilant and follow the guidance outlined by the California Department of Public Health and Mendocino County Public Health. For more information about COVID-19 vaccines, testing, and masking, contact the Mendocino County Public Health COVID19 Call Center at (707) 472-2759 or visit our website at:

The following is a statement from the affected Business:

“The safety of our customers, staff, and community during this pandemic is of utmost importance. NorCal Tires has and will continue to follow ALL health and safety protocols. Recently, one of our employees tested positive for COVID. We want to assure our customers and the public that we will follow the health and safety protocols. We value the health and safety of our community and encourage everyone to get vaccinated to help stop the spread of this deadly virus.” – Jesus Vega

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 if you know a story that needs to be told.
