• Who is being vaccinated now? People in Phase 1A (healthcare workers, long-term care facilities, workers in emergency services) and people 75 and older. How can they sign up for vaccine? Options are listed at www.ShastaReady.org (click “Vaccinations”). If you don’t see an option that works for you and if you are eligible now, there are two ways to get on the list to be scheduled for an appointment – click the blue oval labeled “Tell me when it’s my turn” and complete the short survey, or call (530) 245-7890. Both options will get you on one master list, and Public Health will call or email you to set up an appointment.

• Shasta County remains in the purple (“widespread”) tier. Our adjusted case rate decreased from 49.6 to 36.5 daily cases per 100,000 residents. The unadjusted case rate is 34.8, but was adjusted up because the county’s per capita testing volume is lower than the state average. Our positivity rate decreased from 8.2% to 5.5%.
