In a nod to 420, the international stoner holiday celebrated every April 20, that seemed odd yet entirely fitting, Humboldt County Public Health Officer Teresa Frankovich posted a “COVID Minute” video today to social media urging local farms not to hire trimmers from out of the area this year.
“I’d like to have farmers prioritize hiring people from within the area so we minimize the introduction of travelers and recognize that all people coming into the area need to be quarantined for 14 days prior to mixing with the general workforce,” she said in the short video, which can be found embedded below.
