• *Due to high case counts and delays in lab reporting, public health is unable to provide timely education to all COVID-19 cases in our community, and therefore, we do not have an accurate count of people who are on isolation or quarantine. People who test positive should self-isolate and notify their close contacts. Instructions can be found at Shastaready.org under
“Quarantine and Isolation.”

• Shasta County continues to fall deeper into the purple (“widespread”) tier, as shown by numbers released a day early this week. Our adjusted case rate increased from 20.2 to 34.0 daily cases per 100,000 residents,  exceeding the purple tier limit of 7.0. Our positivity rate also increased from 6.1% to 8.4%, which is also now in the purple tier. You can find this data and more at www.ShastaReady.org; click “Data and Statistics.”

• The tier system is designed to slow the spread of disease when community transmission is high. Right now, bars that don’t serve meals should be closed completely. Restaurants, wineries, gyms, movie theaters, cardrooms, museums, family entertainment centers and place of worship can be open outdoors only.

• The statewide mask mandate has been updated, and it requires people to wear face coverings when they are outside the home, unless an exemption applies. You can learn more in the guidance.
