Board of Supervisors

The Board of Supervisors are the governing body for the County of Del Norte and certain special districts. The Board enacts ordinances and resolutions, adopts the annual budget, approves contracts, appropriates funds, appoints certain County officers and members of various boards and commissions.

Regular meetings of the Board of Supervisors are held and broadcast live the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.

INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED AGAINST COVID-19 MUST WEAR A FACE COVERING INSIDE COUNTY FACILITIES, INCLUDING WHILE ATTENDING A BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING IN-PERSON. 

Due to the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health’s (Cal/OSHA) COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) and Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-09-21, individuals who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are required to wear face coverings in indoor public settings. If you are not fully vaccinated, and cannot wear a face covering, you may watch and participate in the Board Meeting via Zoom, or you may watch the meeting via the County’s YouTube Live Stream and submit written public comment up to one (1) hour prior to the beginning of the meeting.  

“ Fully vaccinated” means that the person received, at least 14 days prior, either the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series or a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines must be FDA approved; have an emergency use authorization from the FDA; or, for persons fully vaccinated outside the United States, be listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO).

“Face covering” means a surgical mask, a medical procedure mask, a respirator, or a tightly woven fabric or non-woven material of at least two layers. A face covering has no visible holes or openings and must cover the nose and mouth. A face covering does not include a scarf, ski mask, balaclava, bandana, turtleneck, collar, or single layer of fabric.
