• We are sorry to have to report a death today. The patient was a woman in her 70s.

• Shasta County will remain in the red (“substantial”) tier for at least another week. Our adjusted case rate decreased from 15.5 to 7.5 daily cases per 100,000 residents, which is just slightly higher than the purple tier limit of 7.0. Our positivity rate also decreased from 5.8% to 3.3%, which is in the orange (“moderate”) tier. Our health equity quartile positivity rate is 3.1%, which is also in the orange tier. These numbers are a seven-day average with a seven-day lag (Oct. 11-17).

• While our case rate still measures in the purple, state guidance says that during the weekly assessment, the California Department of Public Health reviews the most recent 10 days of data, and if there are objective signs of improvement, the county may remain in the less restrictive tier. This is why Shasta has been allowed to remain in the red tier for now.

• Anyone can be tested for COVID-19, with or without symptoms. Go to ShastaReady.org and click “Get tested” to find out the best option for you.
