• With air quality remaining in unhealthy ranges, it’s more important than ever to stay at home as much as possible. The cloth face coverings that many people are wearing to prevent the spread of COVID by containing respiratory droplets are not effective in filtering smoke.
• Fever is one of the main symptoms of COVID-19. If you don’t have a thermometer in your household, you can purchase them at your nearest pharmacy or drug store.
• Anyone can be tested for COVID-19 and same-day appointments are often available. Average turnaround time for tests at the Shasta College site last week was 60 hours, or between 2 and 3 days. Go to ShastaReady.org and click on “Get tested” to find out the best option for you.
