REDDING, Calif. – According to the Shasta County Public Health, there are 103 cases in 44 schools in the county.

Public Health says it has not seen any large outbreaks from any of the schools. Health leaders believe that students are catching the virus outside of school.

“Just like anyone else in the community, kids contract Covid just like anyone else,” said Kerri Schuette with the Shasta Health and Human Services Agency. “

They might be household contacts or some other reasons that a child might have been exposed to. Once they have been identified, they have been excluded from school once their infectious period is over.”

Shasta County Public Health recommends K-to-12 schools close if at least 5% of its staff and students test positive within 14 days. If a school district has more than 25% of its schools going to distance learning, then the whole district would switchback.

Public Health says so far none of the schools in the county are at that threshold.

Shasta County Public Health told Action News Now it has not seen any transmission of coronavirus within the schools.
