Any Nevada County resident who has a current positive test result for COVID-19 or who has long COVID may be eligible for some County services if they have no other support available from family or friends. Positive test result can be from a testing site or a home antigen test. If a home test, a public health nurse will determine if a PCR/on site test is needed. People in these situations can call 211 to be put on a list. County staff will contact them to see if they can assist with services.

All COVID-19 support referrals received over the weekend or on holidays will be reviewed the next business day (regular hours are Mon-Fri 8am-5pm excluding holidays). Hotel rooms are not available as an isolation resource.
 
For people with a current positive COVID test result, the County may be able to provide supplies that can be ordered online for delivery:
  • groceries
  • toiletries
  • diapers
  • cleaning supplies

Nationwide Emergency Alert Test
On Wednesday, October 4, 2023, beginning at approximately 11:20am PACIFIC TIME, FEMA, in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA). The national test will consist of two portions, testing WEA and EAS capabilities.

The test and the loud audio alert will go to devices that receive signal such as cell phones, computers, radios, smart speakers, and TVs.

IMPORTANT - If you have a hidden cell phone because you are a survivor of domestic violence (or for some other reason), you will need to turn your phone off to avoid getting the loud audio alert from the test. 
  • If a phone is off before the test alert is sent and not turned back on until after the WEA Test expires (approximately 30 minutes), the phone should not get the test message.
  • See more info about silencing your phone for tests like this&nb…

  • 208 Sutton Way
    Grass Valley, Nevada

211 Connecting Point provides information about rotating power outages / rolling blackouts.

During heatwaves, the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), the organization that runs the state’s electric grid, can call for rotating outages statewide to protect the stability of the grid. All utilities in the state – including PG&E may be called on to participate.
https://www.pge.com/en_US/residential/outages/planning-and-preparedness/safety-and-preparedness/find-your-rotating-outage-block/find-your-rotating-outage-block.page
These outages typically last between 1 to 3 hours for most customers. These are not Public Safety Power Shutoffs due to extreme fire danger, and are not related to any issues with PG&E’s equipment or its ability to deliver energy locally.
