Butte County COVID disaster continues to be effective

Oroville — In a largely symbolic move, the divided Butte County Board of Supervisors voted to keep a local emergency statement related to COVID-19.

The vote took place after a long list of speakers urged the board to revoke the resolution, although it would not change any existing rules regarding masks or vaccines or any other provisions regarding the response to the pandemic.

County Chief Administrative Officer Andy Pickett explained before the public comment that the county does not have any mask or vaccine regulations, nor can it control schools or private companies that implement these regulations.

However, in the next hour and a half, the spokesperson stepped forward to plead with the supervisor-and at some point threatened them-to cancel the measure.

Speakers believe that the death rate is not very high, and even these figures are exaggerated. They said the virus detection was inaccurate.

They said the vaccine did not help, and more than one million people had adverse side effects, including death. “They are going to kill us, which seems to me to be the case,” one person said. More than one person called these shots “experimental gene therapy.”

They criticized hospital care, saying that they were just making money. They said that doctors were prevented from providing certain types of care, and given positive drugs when symptoms appeared were withheld.

Some people say that this is a government conspiracy based on lies and false narratives. The emergency declaration is illegal and unconstitutional. Others claimed that the mask and vaccine requirements violated their rights.

But when Chico director Tami Ritter asked what would happen if the resolution was revoked. Pickett replied, “Nothing.”

He earlier described the emergency declaration as “a management tool that provides the resources we need.”

These resources are funds from the state and federal governments, and the county uses them for rent assistance and food assistance.

Usually in an emergency, the county government will spend money on necessary things and then seek reimbursement. This time, the county doesn’t need to ask. “They just pushed it there.” It’s still coming.

This may be the only disadvantage to the repeal of the regulation. At a later point in time, the auditor will discover that the county has collected disaster relief funds without announcing the disaster and demanded repayment. It may reach hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Pickett said the danger is small, but said: “We have never been here before. We don’t know how it will turn out.”

After the public comment, Chico Director Debra Lucero asked whether the ongoing disaster solutions for the Camp Fire and North Complex fires would also be cancelled.

“It’s either against the Constitution or it’s not. Will we be consistent?”

Oroville’s chairman of the board, Bill Connery, pointed out that this is not on the agenda, and county counselor Bruce Alpert (remote attending) explained some of the differences between COVID and the fire situation.
