Vaccine update:
– Who? People in Phase 1A (healthcare workers, long-term care facilities, workers in emergency
services) and people 75 and older. As supply increases, vaccine will be more readily available to
additional groups.
– How? Click the blue oval labeled “Tell me when it’s my turn” and complete the short survey. If you don’t have Internet access, call (530) 245-7890 to get on the list. Public Health will call or email you when they have an appointment available for you. It may be several weeks before you are contacted.

• Shasta County remains in the purple (“widespread”) tier, but both measures improved this week. Our adjusted case rate decreased from 36.5 to 25.0 daily cases per 100,000 residents. The unadjusted case rate is 22.4, but was adjusted up because the county’s per capita testing volume is lower than the state average. Our positivity rate decreased from 5.5% to 4.9%. If our positivity rate and equity metric both remain in the orange tier for two more weeks and our case rate continues to decline, we could move into the red tier two weeks from now, even if the case rate is not yet down to the red tier. Please continue to wear masks and physically distance!
