CURRENT SITUATION

– 1 child under age 13
– 2 teenagers
– 2 people in their 20s
– 6 people in their 30s
– 4 people in their 40s
– 1 person in their 50s
– 4 people in their 60s
– 3 people in their 70s

• We are sorry to have to report three deaths today. They are a man in his 50s, a woman in her 80s and a man in his 80s.

• This report includes a weekly update to our total case numbers, as we have been conducting case
investigations to correct reported cases that were duplicates or out-of-county records.

VACCINE CLINICS: Several first- and second-dose clinics are available in the next few weeks in Shasta County. Learn more at www.ShastaReady.org – click on “Vaccinations.”

• Question: When can I get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine? Answer: For right now, this vaccine will be provided to people who have logistical challenges with getting a second dose, and we will be doing outreach to those groups individually.

• If you have tried to make an appointment for a mass vaccination clinic offered at Shasta College hosted by Safeway, don’t give up! The March 11 and 16 clinics are full, but they will be offering several clinics each week and can accommodate 400 people in each clinic. Please check back on their website, as new clinics will be posted very soon.

• Workers in restaurants, grocery stores and food banks are now eligible for vaccine. Other food and agriculture workers will be eligible as more supply becomes available. Find vaccine options at
