• We are sorry to have to report a death today. The patient was a man in his 80s.

• Unfortunately, our numbers have been higher than usual this week. If you work around vulnerable people or live in close quarters with others, please be mindful of COVID prevention measures at all times. This is a very contagious disease and when you live or work in close proximity to others, you can easily spread it if you have it, and we often don’t know we have it right away.

• More than 80 percent of our cases this week have been in people who have symptoms, so if you are sick, even a little bit, stay home.

• 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.
