Supervisor plans to get tested

Kern County Supervisor David Couch said he was exposed to COVID-19 last week and is in quarantine.

Couch, who represents the fourth district, attended Tuesday's Kern County Board of Supervisors via videoconference and made the announcement at the morning session.

Couch, who represented the Taft area for several years before redistricting put Taft into the second district, said he was exposed to the coronavirus at midday Friday.

He plans to undergo testing this week, he said.
