• We are sorry to have to report a death today. The patient was a man in his 70s.
• Shasta County remains in the red (“substantial”) tier after Tuesday’s statewide data update. The case rate measures in the purple tier for the second week in a row, but counties must be in a tier for two weeks before they are moved to a more restrictive tier, so Shasta will remain in the red tier this week. Our case rate increased from 12.8 to 17.6 daily cases per 100,000 residents, and our positivity rate increased from 6.9 to 8.1 percent. These numbers are a seven-day average with a seven-day lag (Sept. 27-Oct. 3).
• We all play a part in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Face coverings help contain infected droplets when someone talks, coughs or sneezes. This does not take the place of the need to maintain physical distancing, handwashing, staying home when sick (even with mild illness) and other safety measures.
