COVID-19 Pandemic

Roadmap to Recovery

The Shasta County Roadmap to Recovery is a path toward re-opening the county. This is our attestation to the state and the Board of Supervisors approved a letter of support.  

Today, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced new statewide closures effective immediately:

Business Closures 07132020

Before reopening, all facilities must:

  1. Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan
  2. Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them
  3. Implement individual control measures and screenings
  4. Implement disinfecting protocols
  5. Implement physical distancing guidelines

It is critical that employees needing to self-isolate because of COVID-19 are encouraged to stay at home, with sick leave policies to support that, to prevent further infection in your workplace. See additional information on government programs supporting sick leave and worker’s compensation for COVID-19.

This guidance and checklist can help you build your reopening plan, and the CDC has also crated a business reopening toolkit. These recommendations are based on what is known at this point in time. When state guidelines become available, adjustments to these recommendations may be necessary. If you need technical assistance on creating your plan, email COVID19@co.shasta.ca.us

Here are some family-friendly practices for employers.

NOTE: Required modifications are listed in accompanying guidance and checklists. For sectors where guidance was added June 5, 2020, businesses can reopen once they have a plan, have trained their staff and are ready to implement their plan. In addition, consider adopting practices to make your business more family-friendly for staff. This link shares support for working families.
