• While all people should be using COVID precautions, some of us have a higher responsibility to be vigilant. If you work or live with people who are at higher risk (older adults or people with health conditions), please be extra-cautious. Some Shasta County residents who had to be hospitalized or died from COVID had not been out in public themselves, but were in contact with people who had been. Please wear face coverings, practice social distancing, wash hands frequently, avoid travel and gatherings, and stay home when you are sick, even if symptoms are mild.

• Anyone can be tested for COVID-19. Some same-day appointments are available for people with and without symptoms. Go to ShastaReady.org and click on “Get tested” to find out the best option for you.
