Current Situation:

 

  • We are sorry to report that a death was confirmed this week. It was a woman in her 70s. Please note, this week is when this death was confirmed and may be days or weeks after the person died.
  • The CDC’s order requiring masks on public transportation and at transportation hubs is no longer in effect, after a court order made this month. However, the CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time.

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.

Current Situation:

  • Shasta County COVID-19 updates are shifting to a weekly format starting today. The weekly updates will be published to social media and the Current News page at ShastaReady.org every Wednesday. You can always find COVID-19 statistics, guidelines and resources at ShastaReady.org.
  • We’re in the green! Shasta County’s COVID-19 transmission rate is “low,” according to the CDC’s COVID-19 Data Community Level Tool. This new tool helps communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. COVID-19 community levels can be low, medium or high and are determined by the number of hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Find the community level data on the *NEW* Shasta County COVID-19 Dashboard at ShastaReady.org.
  • 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.

Current Situation:

  • Question: Why does it take so much time to report COVID deaths?

Answer: Every type of death in Shasta County, including those due to COVID, goes through a careful investigation to make sure the declaration is accurate. This process can take weeks after the death has occurred to complete. To learn more, watch this video with HHSA epidemiologists: How does a death become a COVID-19 death?

  • COVID-19 is a serious illness and is not the same as the flu. Though they have similar symptoms and spread in similar ways, COVID-19 is more contagious and much more deadly. In 2020, Shasta County had 123 deaths from COVID and only 3 deaths from influenza. In 2021, preliminary numbers show that 401 Shasta County residents have died from COVID and 1 died from influenza. The best way to stay safe is with vaccination, available for ages 5 and up for COVID-19 and ages 6 months and up for flu.

  • There is currently no evidence that vaccine ingredients or antibodies made following a COVID-19 vaccination cause fertility issues now or in the future. According to the CDC, researchers across eight health systems followed more than 40,000 pregnant people who were vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine. No safety concerns were identified. Like with all vaccines, scientists continue to study the COVID-19 vaccines carefully for side effects and report findings as they become available. The CDC recommends the COVID-19 vaccination for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now or might become pregnant in the future. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccines while pregnant or breastfeeding or for people who would like to have a baby.

Current Situation:

  • Some people who get COVID-19 recover quickly. But anyone who gets the virus, even young and fit people, can then suffer from “long-term COVID-19.” Symptoms of long COVID include fatigue, shortness of breath, “brain fog,” gastrointestinal problems and loss of taste and smell, among many others. Vaccines and boosters provide the best protection against long COVID. See video at Voices of Long COVID.
  • Starting Friday, masking requirements change for California schools. People can continue to choose to wear masks around others for added protection. Some people may feel anxious about the changes to requirements. Please respect other people’s choices about whether to wear masks, and be kind as people evaluate their risks and make choices to protect themselves and those around them. Talk with your children about the change in mask requirements. Some children may have high-risk people at home, for instance, and therefore continue to choose to wear a mask. Please remind children that these decisions are made together by families, and it’s OK that other families’ choices are different than yours.
  • 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.
