New addendum to order C20-3 from Lake County Public Health Officer to prevent the spread of Covid-19. This includes:

"Immediate Closure of County of Lake waterways, including Clear Lake, Blue Lakes, Highland Springs Reservoir, Cache Creek, Lake Pillsbury, Indian Valley Reservoir and any other public, navigable waterway to any recreational boating activity."

We all need to do our part to protect our county and city staff, the vulnerable populations within our communities, and reduce the impact on our already limited health care services and systems. This might be an inconvenience now but it will save lives later.
