- Shasta County’s Mobile Vaccine Unit brings COVID-19 vaccinations directly to homebound and mobility-challenged residents. From March 2021 to mid-January 2022, its staff has helped 2,235 Shasta County residents protect themselves during the pandemic. The unit has partnered with more than 35 businesses, schools, organizations and congregate settings to administer vaccines to residents, patients, students and workplace employees - many of whom say they couldn't have gotten vaccinated without this service. For an in-home vaccination appointment, go to myturn.ca.gov, select “Find an appointment” and answer “yes” to the question about needing help with transportation or an in-home appointment. You should receive a phone call within a few days.
- Wearing a mask is an easy way to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. To help slow the spread and protect yourself and others, upgrade your mask. Wear an N95, KF94 or KN95 if you can, especially in crowded public settings.
- This report includes a weekly update to Shasta County’s total case numbers. Investigations are conducted to verify that cases meet state reporting requirements. Duplicate, out-of-county, and probable cases are removed. Probable cases include people who tested positive on an antigen test and those with reported symptoms but no confirmed PCR test.
