• Shasta County has the state’s highest case rates besides Alpine and Mono counties, whose small populations create an artificially high case rate. Our numbers have been consistently high for the past couple of weeks, with today’s being the single-highest daily total thus far, and this is not an isolated outbreak that is going to go away. This is community spread, and our community must do something different if we want our numbers to go down. Please redouble your efforts to stay home whenever possible, and when you can’t, be diligent about wearing your mask, physical distancing and practicing excellent hygiene.
• Now is also the time for businesses to really tighten up and follow the restrictions so the public has safe places to shop and eat. Skirting the rules will prolong the problem. We want our businesses, churches and schools to be able to be open safely.
• As COVID-19 cases continue to increase across the country, the governors of California, Oregon and Washington have issued travel advisories urging visitors entering their states or returning home from travel outside these states to self-quarantine to slow the spread of the virus. The travel advisories urge against nonessential out-of-state travel, ask people to self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving from another state or country and encourage residents to stay local.
