We are sorry to report four deaths today. They were a man in his 40s, a woman in her 50s, a man in his 60s and a woman in her 70s. Please note, today is when these deaths were confirmed and may be days or weeks after the people died.
A new supply of 7,740 free at-home COVID-19 test kits is now available at Shasta College and all three branches of Shasta Public Libraries, sent by the California Department of Public Health. Residents may take up to two kits (four tests) per person; calling ahead to check supplies is recommended. Find site addresses, hours and phone numbers at Get Tested at ShastaReady.org.
In September and October, Shasta County averaged 2-3 daily deaths due to COVID-19. (By comparison, the county typically sees six daily deaths from all possible causes.) We expect the number of deaths for October, November and December to also increase in the chart below because of the many deaths still pending investigation.
*Death certificates and relevant information are still pending on several cases.
