Covid-19 in Shasta County: Hospitalizations, ICU numbers highest since pandemic began 08/23/2021

Published August 26, 2021

COVID-19 cases are surging in Shasta County, as are the number of cases serious enough to put people in the hospital.

Also, seven Shasta County residents in their 40s and older died last week. All seven were unvaccinated, according to the Shasta County Health and Human Service Agency.

HHSA blames low vaccination rates, the aggressive Delta variant and people relaxing social distancing and masking practices for the increase in cases.
