Shasta County’s Public Health Officer has been fired without cause. That’s what Board of Supervisors Chair Les Baugh announced following a closed session discussion by the board Tuesday. Doctor Karen Ramstrom drew the ire of some people frustrated over COVID-19 restrictions but, as she pointed out, she and her public health colleagues were never more restrictive than the state required. Her performance evaluations have been positive and her peer reviews exemplary. Baugh, Patrick Jones and Tim Garmin voted in favor of the termination, while Joe Chimenti and Mary Rickert were opposed.
