• Gov. Gavin Newsom today announced a Regional Stay Home Order, which will go into effect within 48 hours in regions with less than 15% ICU availability. The region that includes Shasta County is projected to drop below 15 percent by early December, according to the governor’s office. This prohibits private gatherings of any size, closes sector operations except for critical infrastructure and retail, and requires 100% masking and physical distancing in all others. The order will remain in effect for at least 3 weeks and, after that period, will be lifted when a region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%. This will be assessed on a weekly basis after the
initial 3-week period. Shasta County is included in the Northern California region that also includes Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Siskiyou, Tehama and Trinity counties.
