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 lab test.
COVID-19 vaccination protects you and your community. The more people who get vaccinated, the lower the infection rate among the general population — protecting people who are most at risk from severe COVID-19. Booster shots are also available to those 65 and older and those over 18 who have health conditions or live/work in a high-risk setting. Find the full list of eligible conditions in our Vaccine FAQ.
The LHI state testing site at 2420 Breslauer Way will be closed tomorrow on Veterans Day, November 11, 2021. We will also not be sending out the daily COVID-19 update tomorrow, as our office will be closed for the holiday.
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.
If you need a vaccine: Find options at ShastaReady.org.
In response to the rise in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, video updates will be shared with the community on a regular basis and can be viewed on the Shasta HHSA YouTube channel (closed captioning available).
Weekly media briefings were conducted until the Blueprint for a Safer Economy was lifted on June 15. You can find recordings here.
Rural Association of Northern California Health Officers (RANCHO)
The Rural Association of Northern California Health Officers (RANCHO) is a regional network of county health officers in northern California. RANCHO was formed in the spring of 2020 in response to COVID-19. Other parts of the state have longstanding regional health official associations. These networks address current and emerging health issues by leveraging expertise and resources of local health departments to advance regional public health and promote communication and collaboration among neighboring counties.
