Current Situation:

•One new positive case. This person is a woman in her 50s who is isolated at home.

•The North State Federal Medical Station is making great progress. Processes are being developed and staffing is being secured.

•A four-bed crisis stabilization unit is opening for people with mental health conditions who are in the hospitals’ emergency departments. This will free up emergency rooms while still providing mental health patients with appropriate care.

•Shasta County Probation has taken on a leadership role in enforcing the stay-at-home order that requires non-essential businesses to be closed.

•Isolation and quarantine both help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease. Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick. Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.

•It’s very important to care for your mental health during this time of crisis. Here some tips to help. Visit www.shastaready.org and click on “Taking Care of Yourself.”

    According to the COVID-19 Incident Update from yesterday, there have been no new cases since April 8. With the lack of widespread testing, I’m not going to celebrate just yet. Still, we can hope.
