Due to the coronavirus {COVID-19}, Plumas Rural Services is taking precautionary measures to mitigate the potential spread of the virus, including increased building cleaning measures in accordance with CDC recommendations.

First and foremost, our dedicated staff remains available to assist clients and consumers during this unique time. Wherever possible,we have encouraged our staff to work remotely. We encourage clients and consumers to call, text or email program staff for their needs rather than coming into offices in person.

PLUMAS TRANSIT SYSTEMS continues to run buses on their regular schedules. Buses are undergoing heightened cleaning/disinfecting measures, and we encourage patrons to observe a 6-foot social distance while riding wherever possible.

The ALIVE DAY PROGRAM at the 586 Jackson Street location remains open. Consumers with compromised immune systems and those over 65 should consider not attending during this time for their own wellbeing. Community-based activities are suspended for the time being.

The MOHAWK COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER is open for those wanting to use the library (by appointment only; books, DVDs and puzzles), make copies or fax documents and use the computer.  Also, "Grab & Go" senior lunches are available on Wednesdays. All safety precautions are required.  We suggest that you call ahead of time to ensure staff is available.  836-0446.

WIC community outreach clinics are closed,and clients are being served remotely.

We encourage community members to reach out to our programs for assistance, as we have implemented a telework policy that enables our staff to continue providing services.
