There have been 321 cases and 5 deaths in Trinity County.
1,664 have been reported in Siskiyou County with 13 deaths.

The rates of new coronavirus infections and hospitalizations continue to fall across California, but the state’s death toll remains persistently high. California on Sunday reported another 408 deaths, bringing the total since the outbreak began to more than 46,840, the highest in the nation. Despite the grim death count, health officials are confident that California is emerging from its worst surge of the pandemic. The number of patients in hospitals with COVID-19 slipped below 9,000 statewide, a drop of more than a third over two weeks.

Courts in California have ruled that churches may resume indoor worship services, but the government is still allowed to restrict attendance to 25% capacity. Some Redding houses of worship, including the megachurch Bethel, opened services again Sunday.

A clinic will be held on February 20th to give the second dose to those who were vaccinated January 18th or 19th at Shasta Community Health. Details will be announced Tuesday.

Those who have not had a first dose of vaccine can go to shastaready.org and click on “Tell Me When It’s My Turn” to fill out a form and await contact.

Walk-ins are being accepted at the three state covid testing sites. The sites at Breslauer Way and the Senior Center on Benton Drive are open Tuesday through Saturday and the site at Shasta College is open Monday through Friday. Hours are 7AM to 630PM. More details are at shastaready.org.

Dr. Anthony Fauci is predicting that most Americans will be able to get vaccinations by April.
