• We are sorry to have to report two deaths today. They were a woman in her 60s and a man in his 70s.

• Shasta County remains in the purple (“widespread”) tier. Our adjusted case rate increased from 34.1 to 48.3 daily cases per 100,000 residents. The unadjusted case rate is 43.8, but was
adjusted up because the county’s per capita testing volume is lower than the state average. Our positivity rate increased from 7.6% to 9.4%. Find more data at www.ShastaReady.org; click on “Data and Statistics.”

• Vaccine is now available to In Home Supportive Services providers who provide services outside of their home and have multiple clients, and to Community Health Workers who do hands-on, direct patient care and do not work for a health center or hospital where they can receive vaccination in one of two ways:
