Current Situation:

  • Keep your family and friends safe during your 4th of July travels. Whether you are taking a trip or gathering at home with others, it is recommended that you get tested for COVID-19. This should be no more than 3 days before and after your celebration or trip. If you had COVID-19 in the past 90 days, you do not need to test before or after traveling or stay home after you come back. Detailed information on travel is in this fact sheet from the California Department of Public Health.
  • COVID-19 cases are more than double the “high” rate of transmission, and hospitalizations have more than doubled in the past week. To help our busy emergency room staff, please only go to the ER if you are having a medical emergency. If you need a COVID-19 test, make an appointment with the state’s Test to Treat site at 2420 Breslauer Way or contact your medical provider. Also consider getting vaccinated or boosted. The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective and reduces your risk for severe illness. Go to myturn.ca.gov to make an appointment.

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. Schedule an appointment online. The site is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Current Situation:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends that children ages 6 months and older get a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The June 18 decision was made after analyzing substantial data from clinical trials involving thousands of children, confirming the vaccines’ safety and effectiveness for this age group. As these pediatric vaccines become available in Shasta County, the “Boosters and Vaccinations” page at ShastaReady.org will be updated with directions on how to schedule an appointment. 

  • COVID-19 has become one of the top 10 causes of pediatric death, and tens of thousands of children and teens have been hospitalized because of the virus. While children and adolescents are typically at lower risk than adults of becoming severely ill or hospitalized from COVID-19, the effects of the virus are unpredictable. Please continue to take precautions to protect your children from COVID-19.

If you’ve been exposed: Follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.

  • May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Due to the compounding physical and emotional challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years, the topic of mental health has never been more timely or critical. To promote and strengthen the emotional well-being and resiliency of populations adversely affected by COVID-19-related stress, grief, and loss, visit the How Right Now Campaign by the CDC Foundation.

CDPH has updated its Guidance for the Use of Face Masks to strongly recommend masks on public transportation and in transportation hubs, to align with CDC. Public transportation settings are considered high risk and may not have adequate ventilation, which can increase your risk of getting COVID-19.

  • The first COVID-19 case in Shasta County was reported in March 2020. Now, with more than two years’ worth of data available, the county can offer long-range analysis and more in-depth reporting. View the Shasta County COVID-19 Dashboard and learn about its features with this navigation tutorial.
