HHSA Monitoring/Preparing for COVID-19

Published February 27, 2020

There are currently no cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Shasta County. As the situation develops, HHSA’s communicable disease experts and emergency preparedness units are in close contact with state and federal health officials daily as we implement our plans to protect the public.

At this time, the risk of COVID-19 in Shasta County is low, and the best way to help stop the spread of all germs is to practice routine hygiene like coughing and sneezing etiquette, frequent hand washing, and limiting exposure to the public if you are sick.

We also want to stress the importance of getting your information from reliable news sources. We will notify the public of any new developments through this website, www.shastahhsa.net, and official social media accounts. We also are in regular contact with trusted local news outlets.

The COVID-19 page on our website will be updated as needed and links to relevant websites can be found there.
