This year, the annual health fair hosted by the Latino Outreach of Tehama County will be celebrated a little differently. In the way of social distancing regulations brought on by COVID-19, the health fair will be carried out as a Health & Wellness Car Hop. Dr. Paul Drago discusses the Tehama County event:

To say COVID-19 has brought on a culture of its own would be an understatement.  Virtually every corner of our lives has been forced to adapt to a new normal.  Events, of course, are certainly no different.  With many states still posing regulations that limit building occupancy substantially (due to social distancing requirements), event planning has taken on a different shape.  In particular, many organizations are doing things differently with drive-thrus, car parades and the like.

On September 19, 2020, Latino Outreach of Tehama County and Anthem Blue Cross will join forces in the Tehama County Social Services Department parking lot for a Health & Wellness Car Hop.  The event is a COVID-19 adaptation of the Latino Outreach’s annual health fair.  The drive-thru will take place from 10 AM to 4 PM and supply visitors with items and information to benefit their health and wellness.

Fellow health and wellness advocate, Dr. Paul Drago is pleased to see that the pandemic will not keep the Tehama County residents from accessing the resources and information they need to maintain healthy lifestyles.  Good on you, Latino Outreach!
