• Everyone experiences stress differently and it affects our bodies, thoughts and emotions. Healthy ways to deal with stress include:
Keeping your daily routine even if it looks different for now. Focus on the simple things. Remember to eat, shower, sleep, play, etc.
Getting outside and into nature. This could be as simple as watching a sunset, walking the dog or going for a hike. All of these things are possible to do while practicing physical distancing.
Remembering to bring yourself back into the present when you are stuck worrying about what could happen. Mindfulness tools, such as breathing, guided meditation or journaling about the things you are grateful for are all ways to think about the present moment.
If you are experiencing intense signs of stress for several days or more, visit a mental health
professional. Call 211 or visit www.211norcal.org for resources.
• All deaths included in Shasta County’s reports are caused by COVID. Death certificates also list other conditions that contributed to the person’s death. For example, a person may have died from COVID because an underlying condition (such as COPD) made it impossible for them to recover, but they would not have died from that condition at that time if they hadn’t developed COVID. In other instances, COVID may have caused a condition (such as blood clots or lung damage) that led to the person’s death, which would not have happened if the person had not gotten COVID. Each of these cases are considered COVID deaths, and all COVID deaths are
based on death certificate completion by the attending physician or coroner.
