- In April, the California Department of Public Health is randomly sending CalScope survey invitations to homes in Shasta County. This anonymous survey and at-home COVID-19 antibody test will help the state learn how many people in California have COVID-19 antibodies and how this can change over time. Learn more.
- Beginning April 4, antigen tests will be available at the Boggs LHI/Optum Serve site at 2420 Breslauer Way in Redding. This means people will be able to get their results faster. PCR tests will also remain available for people who need proof of a negative COVID-19 test. A PCR test is recommended for people who have symptoms but test negative on an antigen test. For testing information and locations, visit the Get Tested page on ShastaReady.org.
