- Myth: Children don’t get COVID.
Fact: Children do get COVID, and while most don’t get severely ill, they can pass it to people who do, including older family members. Children can also infect school staff, which can impact a school’s ability to keep teachers in classrooms and support staff on duty. More than 4,000 Shasta County residents under age 18 have had COVID, including infants, and at least 10 were sick enough to be hospitalized in the past six months.
