Rodeo jeopardizes Shasta County’s ability to re-open 05-11-2020

Published May 12, 2020

A rodeo in Cottonwood on Sunday violated the governor’s stay-at-home order and has delayed the county’s ability to re-open retail businesses, restaurants and more during Stage 2.

On Friday, May 8, Shasta County Health Officer Karen Ramstrom attested that Shasta County met criteria for a “regional variance,” which would have allowed Shasta County to re-open businesses including retail, dine-in restaurants, shopping malls, car washes, pet grooming, tanning facilities, office-based businesses, outdoor museums and childcare facilities.
