Lake County Health Officer Resigns

Lake County Public Health Officer, Dr. Gary Pace, will step down some time this spring. Pace notified the Board of Supervisors of his decision last week, according to Lake County News.

Clearlake City Manager Alan Flora, who has worked closely with Pace along with the City Council, called his departure “disappointing.”

“Overall he’s been a good partner with the city and we’ve enjoyed working with him, and he’s always been responsive to the concerns that we’ve had. So we wish him the best,” Flora said.

Pace has been steering the country through the COVID-19 pandemic since its outset. He was appointed to the public health officer position in October 2019 after serving in the interim role. He previously served as the public health officer in Mendocino County.
