Two men in their 20s
Three men in their 30s
One man in his 40s
One man in his 50s

• We are sorry to have to report a death today. The patient was a man in his 70s.

• Our capacity for testing has increased in recent weeks. The state testing site can now test up to 154 people per weekday, up from a maximum of 132 per day, adding 110 tests per week. Shasta Community Health Center’s mobile testing has increased from 60 to 80 available tests per week through the mobile testing site. Anyone can be tested for COVID-19. Go to and click on “Get tested” to find out the best option for you.

• The number of tests that we are reporting today is most likely an undercount, due to the data reporting challenges at the state level that were shared earlier this week. The state expects that this will be resolved within the next week.

• As a reminder, we will not be reporting cases over the weekend, and Monday’s report will include numbers from Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
