Fire Season Is Upon Us
September 08, 2020

With the air quality poor, hot and dry north winds, and red flag warning, it is a reminder that fire season is upon us. Sutter County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is monitoring the fires in surrounding counties and are poised, ready to help! We are working with our community and response partners to provide evacuation centers if needed.

Where can you go locally to get your flu shot?
September 04, 2020

The time is now to get a flu shot

Getting vaccinated against influenza has always been important, but never so important as it is right now. COVID-19 is still in our community and shares many of the same symptoms. The "Twindemic" of having both illnesses present can be a dangerous combination that also has the potential if overwhelming out hospital and clinics.

Get your flu shot as soon as possible. You can go to your own doctor or visit a local pharmacy offering the service. Here is a list of options:

Yuba-Sutter Health Officer Awarded
September 03, 2020

Yuba-Sutter Health Officer Dr. Phuong Luu is one of the first recipients of a new Public Health award named after Butte County’s former Health Officer.

Dr. Luu – along with Shasta County Health Officer Dr. Karen Ramstrom – was awarded the Andy Miller, MD, Public Health Excellence Award via Zoom on Wednesday, Aug. 19. The award was presented by Healthy Rural California, a new nonprofit associated with the Butte-Glenn Medical Society.

“I nominated Dr. Luu for the award for the energy, leadership and effectiveness in which she has exhibited in her new position from minute one,” said Placer Nevada County Medical Society & Yuba Sutter Colusa Medical Society Executive Director Quinn Gregory said. “The region had been waiting for someone since the departure of our beloved former member Dr. Quick and Dr. Luu has been an incredible choice.”

Healthy Rural California’s first award was presented to Dr. Andy Miller – who retired as Butte County Health Officer this summer – in July. The nonprofit’s Board decided to dedicate the award to Dr. Miller’s namesake after his community leadership during emergencies like the Oroville Spillway, Camp Fire, and COVID-19 pandemic, Gregory said, as well as a measles outbreak. The purpose of the award is to recognize other public health officers in rural counties.

“Dr. Luu was faced with a significant public health emergency just two months into her tenure with Yuba and Sutter counties,” Yuba County Administrator Kevin Mallen said. “Her wealth of knowledge and expertise in communicable diseases, as well as public health emergency preparedness and response, has made her an incredible asset during this time. We’re proud that she has been acknowledged with this Public Health Excellence Award.”

“I believe Dr. Luu has done excellent work for our area, considering she has tried to be cognizant of primarily health but also mindful of the local economic difficulties from a nearly complete shutdown and collapse as ordered by the Governor,” Sutter County Board Chairman Ron Sullenger said. “She understands the health impacts of the stress caused by loss of work, and the disconnection of family and friends. She is an extremely bright physician and has been a wonderful acquisition for both Sutter and Yuba counties.”

Dr. Luu became the bi-county Health Officer in mid-January and was quickly charged with heading the public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic. She is also a member of the Yuba-Sutter-Colusa Medical Society and California Medical Association. She temporarily served as interim Butte County Health Officer after the retirement of Dr. Miller.

“I am humbled and honored to have received this award. Though I was only able to work with Dr. Miller for a short time, he was a great colleague and mentor for me during these trying public health times,” Dr. Luu said. “Public health work is tough work, but it is also very rewarding to play an integral role in maintaining the health and safely of the community.”
