REDDING, Calif. – Many people are back at work Monday, while others are home for a couple of weeks after holiday travel and gatherings.

But with cases soaring, it’s still not a good idea to travel outside of the county. Shasta County Public Health is still discouraging non-essential travel.

“We should definitely be worried about it and limit the spread as much as possible,” said Austin Espy of Redding.

“I definitely think [people] should quarantine until they get a test done until it comes back and they obviously have a negative test.”

With Thanksgiving over, the threat of the coronavirus still lingers.

“If you were around people who were not from your household, we would encourage you to be very careful for the next few weeks and limit your exposure to others,” said Kerri Schuette with the Shasta Health & Human Services Agency.

If your holiday plans take you outside of your home, Public Health recommends that you quarantine for 14 days and limit your everyday activities. The two-week quarantine also counts if you had people over for Thanksgiving dinner.

Some people believe that quarantining yourself can prevent the further spread of the virus.

“You don't want to spread the disease if you've been exposed to it,” one person shared with Action News Now. “People need to be careful, wear masks outside, and be careful who you're exposed to.”

Public Health says it's always a good idea to get tested for Covid-19. But even though you test negative that does not mean your quarantine ends early. It's still a 14-days period.

White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, Dr. Deborah Birx also said, that if you were around other people on Thanksgiving, assume that you are infected.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
