REDDING, Calif. - The coronavirus pandemic has some people leaving the cities and heading to smaller towns.

Michaela McQueen and Whitney Grandell are both originally from Redding. McQueen now lives and works in Stockton, while Grandell is based out in New York. But both moved back in with their families here in Shasta County as soon as they saw the number of coronavirus cases rise.

“As soon as this really hit, and it was something to be taken seriously,” said Grendell. they said our restaurants started closing, i had a little bit foreshadowing of what was going to happen.

Grandell and McQueen tell Action News Now, they self-isolated for 14 days when they returned home.

The two friends are unsure how long they plan to stay in Shasta County, but for now, they’re riding out the storm.

But even with all the stress and fear from the coronavirus, some people are finding the silver lining it the crisis. Redding resident Honey Storlie says she's keeping a positive outlook during this whole pandemic.

Storlie tells Action News Now, she’s not focusing on the negatives of the coronavirus. Instead, she’s choosing to see things in a different light. That’s because she's seen so many people here in the community step up and reach out. Such as giving senior citizens their time to shop or even seeing Starbucks workers create stronger bonds with each other.

“Sometimes in the busyness, we can lose sight of the most important things, relationships, connections, our hearts are so valuable,” said Storlie.
