• While one person can spread the virus to hundreds of others, the reverse is also true. One person can stop transmission in its tracks by taking necessary precautions to prevent spread. Multiply those actions by thousands of people, and you’ll understand the power of what Shasta County residents have achieved. We can enjoy restaurants, the movies, church, museums and more because we are containing the spread. Staying in the orange keeps our community open. It’s easy to do your part – wear your mask, keep your distance, stay home when you’re sick, wash your hands and avoid gatherings. Learn more at www.ShastaReady.org.
