Shasta County public health sees rise in cases from small gatherings and younger age groups 07-09-2020

Shasta County is seeing a rise in coronavirus cases.

Shasta County Public Health says in the last few weeks it's noticed a lot of its cases are coming from small gatherings. Which ranged from small parties to friends getting together.

Public Health says while it seems harmless, it's putting others at risk.

“I think everybody should take precautions,” said Charles Oppitz of Redding. “Especially the people who have comorbidities, whether it’s another illness or age vector.”
