Supervisor Baugh on ‘self-imposed’ stay-home over concern of potential covid-19 exposure 07-02-2020

Published July 2, 2020

Shasta County Supervisor Les Baugh was not at Tuesday’s board meeting out of concerns that he may have been exposed to the coronavirus at his church.

“I was notified late last week that close family friends had been exposed to COVID-19. In my detailed discussion with Public Health, because I’m several x’s removed from the original source, it was clear there is very limited possibility of additional spread,” Baugh posted on Facebook. “No one is symptomatic. Even so, out of an abundance of caution, I decided not to attend today’s meeting in-person while I wait for their test results.”
