There’s a lot going on and it can be tough to keep up with, so here’s a quick list of COVID-19 announcements you may have missed yesterday.

The Trinidad Rancheria announced it will close Cher-Ae Heights Casino, Sunset Restaurant, Sunrise Grill and the Firewater Lounge, with all closures in full effect by 2 a.m. Thursday. (Bear River and Blue Lake casinos announced closures earlier this week.) The Seascape Restaurant, meanwhile, will remain open for take-out only and directs customers to its Facebook page for information about how to order and pick up. The Rancheria will re-evaluate the closures in a week.

The Humboldt County Library announced that due to health concerns posed by COVID-19, all library locations and the Bookmobile will be closed through March 31. “This decision is based on information from the California Department of Public Health and is designed to protect the healthy of our community and staff,” a press release states, adding that volunteers will be contacted and asked not to report until further notice. The library will also be “waiving fines that accrue during this crisis,” even though its automated system may still notify folks of fines and overdue books. But rest assured, no need to leave the house to return that overdue book.

The North Coast Co-op announced that it is temporary changing store hours and offering a senior-only shopping hour every morning to help Humboldt’s older demographic shop for essentials while limiting exposure to the virus that is disproportionately dangerous to their age group. The stores will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with the 7 to 8 a.m. hour reserved solely for senior shoppers.

Coming Attracts Theatres announced yesterday that it is closing Broadway and Mill Creek Cinemas effective today but hopes to re-open them “in the very near future.” The Minor and the Miniplex, meanwhile, have already closed.
