• Vaccine is now available for all people in Phase 1A, and people over age 75 will be eligible on Tuesday. We can alert you when you are eligible for vaccination. Go to www.ShastaReady.org, click on “Vaccinations” and select “Tell me when it’s my turn.”
• Don’t forget about the mass vaccination clinic on Saturday for In Home Supportive Services providers and Community Health Workers. Find details at www.ShastaReady.org; click on “Vaccinations.”
• We are seeing many positive cases in offices, and many are reporting close contact with others in the workplace. This requires those contacts to be quarantined. Masks are required at all times indoors, unless you are alone in a private office. If you test positive and you and your colleagues have been staying at least six feet apart and wearing masks, they should not need to be quarantined. Let’s work together to stop the spread.
• County offices will be closed Monday, January 18, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The next incident update will be released Tuesday, January 19.
