• *Due to high case counts and delays in lab reporting, 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 www.ShastaReady.org under “Quarantine and Isolation Instructions.”
• **The state is updating the system it uses to collect negative test results, so we don’t have access to current numbers today.
• The rate at which COVID-19 is spreading is measured by the effective reproduction number (R-effective), which is the average number of additional people who will be infected by each person who is COVID-19 positive. Shasta County’s R-effective is 1.36, up from October 1 when it was 1.03. This means we can expect that the 149 cases we saw yesterday will infect approximately 203 more individuals.
