It is important to know that these variants have been detected in Shasta County and it is unknown how widespread they are at this time. The delta variant is now the most prevalent strain of the COVID-19 virus circulating in the United States. The below numbers were updated 7/22/2021.

On June 29, 2021, CDC de-escalated Epsilon from a “variant of concern” to a “variant of interest.” Therefore, we have removed the Epsilon cases from our count, which is why the number of variants of concern went down from our last report. Of these cases, 56% are female and 44% male. The average age is 42.
