Public health urges caution as more businesses re-open 05-19-2020

Published May 21, 2020

Public health says the community should still be cautious, with no non-essential travel, no gatherings, and the use of masks while out in public. They also encourage everyone to get tested. 2,942 tests have shown negative results in Shasta County. Anyone, even with no symptoms, can get tested for free at a Covid testing station at Shasta College or at the Red Bluff Community Center or at Corning High School. If insurance doesn’t cover the cost, the state will. Appointments must be made online at lhi.care/covidtesting.
