The current COVID-19 numbers are as bad or worse than at the height of the pandemic. The latest available numbers are from Thursday, when 131 new cases were reported. There were 969 active cases of sickness in the community. 88 people are in the hospital, 23 of them in the ICU. Three people under age 25 were hospitalized last week. It’s still possible for vaccinated people to get Covid, but they rarely get seriously ill from it. Testing and vaccinations are free, with options listed at shastaready.org.
