- Shasta County’s case rates and hospitalizations have decreased over the past week, which is excellent news. Please continue to do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19, including staying home when sick, getting tested if you’ve been exposed, wearing a mask in indoor public places (required for unvaccinated people and recommended for vaccinated people), and getting vaccinated if you are eligible.
- Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home. The most common symptoms are fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, sore throat, nausea, diarrhea and new loss of taste or smell. However, there are some emergency warning signs, and immediate medical attention is necessary if you have difficulty breathing, pressure or pain in your chest, bluish lips or face, if you’re confused or hard to wake, or if you have other serious symptoms. Learn more on the Symptoms page at ShastaReady.org.
If you’ve been exposed: Follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.
If you need to be tested: Find options on the Get Tested page. Please note: Appointments are required at most places due to high demand.
