Governor Declares State of Emergency for Three Additional Counties 
AG Reminds of Price Gouging for New Counties Under State of Emergency

On Thursday, August 5, 2021 Governor Newsom declared a state of emergency for Siskiyou, Nevada, and Placer counties due to active wildfires – see Gov Newsom 8.5.21 News Release.

This brings the total number of counties under a State of Emergency to seven, as previously on July 23, 2021, Governor Newsome declared a State of Emergency in Plumas, Butte, Lassen, and Alpine counties in the Gov Newsom 7.23.21 News Release.

In addition, AG Bonta Issued a Consumer Alert on Price Gouging for the three new counties (Siskiyou, Nevada, Placer) – see AG Bonta 8.6.21 News Release.

This too, brings the total number of counites where a Consumer Alert on Price Gouging has been issued to seven, following the Consumer Alert issued by AG Bonta 7.24.21 News Release.
