Shasta County remains in the purple (“widespread”) tier. Our adjusted case rate increased from 33.8 to 39.8 daily cases per 100,000 residents, exceeding the purple tier limit of 7.0. The actual case rate is 62.9, but it was adjusted down because the county’s per capita testing volume is higher than the state average. Our positivity rate increased from 9.1% to 9.7%. The purple tier begins at 8%. You can find this data and more at www.ShastaReady.org; click “Data and Statistics.”

About the data: Active cases are an undercount because of delays due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Active cases, in isolation, in quarantine, and released from isolation numbers are estimates, because Public Health cannot complete one-on-one case investigation and contact tracing on all cases. If you have tested positive and haven’t been contacted by Public Health, or if you have been a close contact of someone who tested positive, go to www.ShastaReady.org and click “Quarantine and Isolation Instructions.”

The majority of recent cases have been people with symptoms – 91% in September, 90% in October and 93% in November. The most common symptoms have been cough, headache, fever and muscle aches.
