•Shasta County remains in the purple (“widespread”) tier. Our adjusted case rate increased from 29.9 to 34.1 daily cases per 100,000 residents. The unadjusted case rate is 30.9, but was adjusted up because the county’s per capita testing volume is lower than the state average. Our positivity rate increased from 6.3% to 7.6%.
