New Year’s Eve and covid: Could Shasta County see another spike in cases, deaths? 12/30/2020

Published January 4, 2021

December has been the worst month for the pandemic in Shasta County, with 26 deaths reported in the first 29 days — more than large counties like Santa Barbara and San Francisco.

Now, local health officials worry that New Year's Eve gatherings could accelerate the spread of the virus, threatening to undercut the progress from recent declines in case rates and hospitalizations.
