PALO CEDRO, Calif. – One high school in Shasta County is now moving to online instruction after confirming 14 positive coronavirus cases.

The high school’s principal, Steve Abbot, told Action News Now they confirmed the 14 positive cases in the past two weeks. Abbot said several students and staff are also in quarantine after coming into close contact with those infected.

Out of the high school’s 58 teachers, enough are sick or in quarantine that they can not maintain an in-person schedule, therefore forcing them to switch back to distance learning, according to Abbot.

If all goes well, the high school hopes to return to in-person classes on Nov. 30.
