Shasta health leaders say county could face serious consequences 10/21/2020

Published October 23, 2020

As cases continue to climb, Shasta County leaders are fighting to keep businesses open. With Shasta County now in the purple tier, the county is now faced with tighter restrictions.

On Thursday, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors will be holding a special meeting to talk about the state’s reopening guidelines.

“I kind of think we should just be living our lives how we are,” said Ryan Monaco of Redding.

“It’s hurting our local businesses and it’s hurting our economy and it's screwing up our lives.”

But some people feel the guidelines are necessary.
