  • Shasta County has dropped into the red (“substantial”) range after Tuesday’s statewide data update. Our case rate increased from 6.5 to 12.8 daily cases per 100,000 residents, and our positivity rate increased from 4 to 6.9 percent. These numbers are a seven?day average with a
    seven?day lag (Sept. 20?26). The case rate measures in the purple tier, but counties must be in a tier for two weeks before they are moved to a more restrictive tier, so Shasta will remain at red until at least Oct. 20.
  • Businesses have 3 days to comply with the new restrictions. Some of the more notable required changes include:
    Restaurants, places of worship and movie theaters can be open at 25 percent capacity or 100
    people, whichever is fewer
    Retail and shopping centers can be open at 50 percent capacity
    Gyms and fitness center can be open at 10 percent capacity
    Wineries can be open outdoors only
    Bars, breweries and distilleries that don’t serve food must close
    Schools are not affected by the change in tiers
