• Do you have questions about COVID-19 in Shasta County? Another virtual town hall meeting is planned for Wednesday, Feb. 24. The regular weekly online media briefing will take place from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m. Then, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., we will welcome questions from the public. To participate, send your question via email to COVID19@co.shasta.ca.us, with the subject line, “Question for Town Hall Meeting.” Staff will read emailed questions aloud, in the order that they were received, for response from health officials. We will address questions about local issues, and not those that state or federal agencies would address.
