• If you received your first COVID-19 shot during the mass vaccination clinic on January 16 in Redding, you can get your second dose Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Shasta District Fairgrounds in Anderson. This will be a drive-through clinic. Please arrive by last name: A-G, 10-11:30 a.m.; H-M, 11:30-1 p.m.; N-S, 1-2:30 p.m.; and T-Z, 2:30-4 p.m. Your CDC card that shows the date of your first vaccine is required. Other second dose options will be available soon.
• Gathering virtually or with the people you live with is the safest way to celebrate the Super Bowl this year. If you do have a small gathering with people who don’t live with you, outdoors is safer than indoors. Here are some ideas:
– Host a virtual Super Bowl watch party.
– Make appetizers or snacks with the people you live with to enjoy while watching the game.
– Start a text group with other fans to chat about the game while watching.
– Attend an outdoor viewing party where viewers can sit 6 feet apart.
• All three state COVID testing sites accept both walk-ins and appointments. These locations are Shasta College (Monday through Friday), the Boggs Building at 2420 Breslauer Way (Tuesday through Saturday) and the Senior Center at 2290 Benton Drive (Tuesday through Saturday). Hours are 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. If you prefer to make an appointment, go to
