• If you have tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home and isolate from others. If you received test results and Public Health has not yet contacted you, please reach out to people you may have been in contact with during your infectious period, which is two days before your symptoms started until now. If you are a close contact of a person who has COVID-19, please stay home for 14 days from your last contact with that person, except to receive medical care and to get tested. Go to www.ShastaReady.org and select “Get Tested” to determine the best testing option for you.

• Cloth face coverings can help slow the spread of COVID-19, including from people who may not know they have the virus. Face coverings help contain infected droplets when someone talks, coughs or sneezes. This strategy should be used along with maintain physical distancing, handwashing, staying home when sick (even with mild illness) and other safety measures.
