Participating in Board of Supervisors Meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the County of Shasta is adapting the way that Board of Supervisors meetings are conducted. 

At this time, we are continuing to hold regularly scheduled meetings of the Board of Supervisors to allow the County to conduct essential business.  Modifications have been made to protect public health while still encouraging engagement from the public.

Public Comment Options:

  • Provide comments in-person
  • Submit written comments via email or mail
  • Provide public comment live via telephone *NEW OPTION*
  • Record a comment over voicemail to be played during the live meeting *NEW OPTION*

Addressing the Board in person:

In light of recent actions by the State, and the continuing increase of COVID-19 cases in Shasta County, entry to the Board of Supervisors Chambers by members of the public is limited as follows.

Members of the public who wish to make in-person public comment will be permitted into the Board Chambers one at a time to make a comment and then must exit.  Speakers must wait outside of the Board Chambers until they are called upon, with no less than six feet of distance between themselves and others at all times.  Face coverings are required inside of the Shasta County Administration Center and the Board Chambers, except when exempted by state order.  There will be no seating available to the public in the Board Chambers.

Media representatives will be permitted to observe and record the proceedings in person.

Members of the public are strongly encouraged to consider the following alternative channels that have been made available for remote participation.
