Shasta County could move to red tier just after Valentine’s Day; Here is how 02/03/2021

Published February 5, 2021

Shasta County may be able to move out of the purple tier as soon as mid-February, health officials said.

That’s because the number of new cases reported daily are down after a post-holiday surge in January.

The number of COVID-19 cases in Shasta County dropped over the past week to an average of 25 per day, Public Health Branch Director Robin Schurig said at a media briefing on Wednesday.
