Napa County aligned itself Tuesday with the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic by lifting its local state of emergency.

The county Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to lift the state of emergency, which helped the county quickly mobilize testing, vaccination and other response efforts and made the county eligible for future funding reimbursement by the state and federal governments.

Gov. Gavin Newsom rescinded California’s COVID state of emergency declaration on Feb. 28. Many other Bay Area counties have since done the same with their local emergency declarations.

The federal COVID state of emergency is also set to end on May 11.

State and local public health officials continue to urge California residents to complete their initial COVID vaccination series if they have yet to do so and, if eligible, receive a booster vaccine dose to reduce the chance of becoming seriously ill or dying due to the virus.

As of March 9, 79.9 percent of Napa County residents have completed their initial COVID vaccination series. Roughly two-thirds of residents have also received at least one booster vaccine dose.

Since the pandemic began, the county has confirmed 34,569 cases of COVID and 192 COVID-related deaths among county residents.
