• People may have more serious complications from COVID-19 if they have comorbidities – but what does that really mean? Comorbidities aren’t just illnesses like cancer, heart disease and COPD. In Shasta County, 36.7% of residents have hypertension, 33.1% have obesity (BMI of 30+), and 15.5% have diabetes, all of which put people at higher risk for COVID complications.
