• Shasta County remains in the purple (“widespread”) tier. Our adjusted case rate increased from 41.6 to 46.2 daily cases per 100,000 residents. The unadjusted case rate is 57.4, but was adjusted down because the county’s per capita testing volume is higher than the state average. Our positivity rate increased from 9.7% to 10.5%.

• COVID vaccine has arrived in Shasta County! Today, 1,950 doses of Pfizer vaccine were received at Mercy Medical Center. They will be distributed among other acute care facilities in a coordinated effort. Future deliveries will be made directly to the acute care facilities. The county is tentatively scheduled to receive 530 more doses of Pfizer vaccine and about 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine next week.
