• Shasta County has 2 new positive cases today. One is a female in her 30s and the other is a female in her 40s. Both are isolated at home.
• It’s going to be a beautiful holiday weekend, and while it may be tempting to bend the rules, people need to continue to avoid non-essential travel and gatherings for now. We must still protect our vulnerable neighbors, including people age 65 and older or those with underlying medical conditions, and they should still remain at home as much as possible.
• California is reopening in stages to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. Shasta County is in Stage 2, which has allowed many lower-risk businesses to reopen with required modifications. Businesses that aren’t yet allowed to open can lay the required groundwork now so they’re ready to reopen as soon as it’s OK. Business owners can begin building a reopening plan using the guidance and checklist at www.ShastaReady.org – click on “Roadmap to Recovery” and select “What Businesses Cannot Open Yet?” These recommendations are based on what is known right now. When state guidelines become available, adjustments may be necessary.
• Be a smart consumer! Go to www.ShastaReady.org, click on “Roadmap to Recovery” and select “For Consumers” to find a checklist that helps us all know what to look for when deciding which businesses to visit.
