In rural California community, officials slow reopening

Humboldt County was among the first in the state to get the governor’s green light to open up restaurants and stores after a two-month statewide lockdown. With about 50 cases reported in April in the county of 130,000, many breathed a sigh of relief. But this month, county officials reported nearly 30 new cases in a two-week period and the first two deaths. That has prompted officials to take a more cautious approach to reopening. Gov. Gavin Newsom has approved 45 of California’s 58 counties to reopen some businesses since May 8 when he loosened his original mid-March stay-at-home order.
