REDDING, Calif. - As hospitals fill up and cases stay in Shasta County stay around 100 a day, the county is pulling back on its mobile testing plan.

The Boggs building used to be a testing site back in November. But Shasta County moved it to the Senior Center on Benton Drive, opening it up to what used to be the mobile testing unit.

The mobile testing site was supposed to serve Anderson, Shasta Lake, and the Enterprise area.
But the county found not too many people were using it.

If not enough people are using a testing site the state can pull it. So the county turned the mobile unit into a stationary one and put it in the Boggs building.

“We want to make sure that all of our testing resources are being used to the maximum capacity possible,” said Kerri Schuette, the Public Information Office for the Shasta Health & Human Services Agency.

The Boggs building testing site was up and running this week.

“If people get tested then they know that they're positive and they know to stay away from other people,”said Emma Hegenauer of Redding.

“The more testing that we get done the more we can keep the virus from spreading.”
Shasta County has two more testing sites, the one here in the Boggs building, the one at the Senior Center and one at Shasta College.

Public health says even without a mobile testing unit there are still more testing resources available for people all over Shasta County.
