- The BA.2 and BA.5 variants have been detected in Shasta County. As long as COVID-19 spreads, mutations and new variants are expected to occur. The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including its variants, is to get vaccinated and boosted. Being vaccinated decreases the likelihood you will get sick and makes it less likely you will need hospitalization or die if you get infected. Increased vaccination rates around the world will decrease the likelihood that the coronavirus will mutate into other dangerous variants.
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: You can get tested and treated for COVID-19 with one stop. The state’s Test to Treat site at 2420 Breslauer Way provides testing, and if the person is positive and treatments are appropriate, they receive a prescription from a health care provider and have the prescription filled all at one location.
