March 24, 2020—Ukiah ER Physician Dr. Drew Colfax and Dr John Rochat of Anderson Valley Health Center give an update and answer questions about the current coronavirus situation in Mendocino County, including what we know about the one new case of COVID-19 confirmed this morning by Dr. Mimi Doohan, County Public Health Officer. They reflect on the need for people to take seriously the shelter-in-place directive, with Mendocino County scoring 35th in the state in compliance according to cell phone records of movement in the county, and suggest that in order to flatten the curve it may take longer than expected of social distancing to make an impact.
