• The total confirmed cases in Friday’s report contained a typographical error. That report has been corrected on our website.

• We have officially passed the 100,000 mark for COVID-19 tests performed in Shasta County! Testing is a critical surveillance tool that helps us know how COVID-19 is affecting our county.

• The testing that has recently become available at the HHSA offices in Anderson, Enterprise and Shasta Lake City is by appointment only. Testing is at the Enterprise office on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; at the Anderson office on Saturday; and at the Shasta Lake City office on Sunday. This is state testing, and the people who conduct the tests are not there on other days, so please do not come to an office for a COVID-19 test without an appointment. Go to www.ShastaReady.org and click on “Get Tested” to make an appointment.
