Covid-19 hospitalizations and cases rising in Shasta County 08/24/2021

Published August 26, 2021

Covid-19 is hitting many Shasta schools hard this first week back.

The Shasta County Office of Education is seeing infections in school staff and schools are having a hard time finding substitutes. Whether it’s teachers, bus drivers, and even cafeteria workers.

“When a teacher or school staff needs to go out, those positions still have to be met,” said Superintendent Judy Flores of the Shasta County Office of Education.

“I talked with a superintendent this morning who was actually in classes teaching because they have no substitutes and it's a huge issue already. We're only a week into the school year.”
