• We had 8 new cases on Wednesday. All had symptoms and none are hospitalized. They are:
Three women and three men in their 20s
One woman in her 30s
One man in his 40s

• We are sorry to have to report two deaths today. The patients were a woman in her 60s and a man in his 50s.

• One of the challenges of having so much information at our fingertips is the ability to tell fact from fiction. The World Health Organization has some tips on how to report misinformation online, along with some mythbusters about COVID-19.

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