The first case of COVID-19 in Tulare County was identified on March 11, 2020. Since then, the Tulare County Health & Human Services Agency's Public Health Branch has been working closely with local partners, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
All residents should take the precautions listed in our What You Should Know About COVID-19 document (below). Social distancing measures should be followed closely and residents should only leave home for essential business. Stay home. Save lives.
One cannot determine if there is a risk of COVID-19 by judging a person’s nationality and appearance. The desire to do so is called discrimination and this type of stigma creates unwarranted fear and anger towards a group of people instead of directing those feelings at the disease that is causing the problem.
If you suspect you have COVID-19, have come into contact with a person who has COVID-19, or have questions, please call 2-1-1.
