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

• This report includes an adjustment to our total case numbers, as we have been conducting case investigations to correct reported cases that were duplicates/previously reported, out-of-county records, or people who were previously counted but later turned out to not be a case.

• Shasta County has been moved into the purple (“widespread”) tier. Our adjusted case rate increased from 7.5 to 10.4 daily cases per 100,000 residents, which exceeds the purple tier limit of 7.0. Our positivity rate also increased from 3.3% to 4.1%, which is in the orange (“moderate”) tier. Our health equity quartile positivity rate is 4.5%, which is also in the orange tier. These numbers are a seven-day average with a seven-day lag (Oct. 18-24).

• As a result, the following changes are required by Friday (the complete list is at www.ShastaReady.org, select “Roadmap to Recovery”):
– Restaurants, museums, zoos, aquariums, places of worship, movie theaters, gyms and fitness centers,
wineries, family entertainment centers and cardrooms can only be open outdoors.
– Retail and shopping centers can be open indoors at 25 percent capacity.
– K-12 schools do not need to close in the purple tier.
