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. 

Special Meetings:

Due to shorter timeframes associated with Special Meetings, please note that timeframes and guidelines provided below may be modified in some cases.  Please refer to the information provided on the agenda or call the Clerk of the Board at (530) 225-5550 to confirm.

Regular Meetings:

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.  Reasonable accommodations will be made for individuals with disabilities, with any doubt being resolved in favor of accessibility.

In light of recent actions by the State, and the continuing increase of COVID-19 cases in Shasta County, meetings of the Board of Supervisors will be conducted virtually beginning November 17, 2020, and until further notice.  There will be no in-person participation for Board Members, staff, or members of the public. 

Here are ways that you can participate in virtual Board Meetings:
