SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. – Shasta County Public Health said a Shasta Community College student who tested positive for coronavirus is the sixth positive case in the county.

Public Health said it's a female in her 20's and the case is travel-related and that she traveled out of the state. The student is isolating at home.

Public Health added that this is a good example of why it's so important for people to stay home. The patient did not show any symptoms for 14 days before tests showed that she was positive.

The college said it was just confirmed on Monday, March 30 about the test results.

College Marketing and Outreach Director, Peter Griggs said the notice let people know that while they believe it’s unlikely students or staff had direct exposure to the coronavirus, they notified them of the potential exposure.

Shasta College last held face-to-face classes on March 15, with the exception of their fire academy and EMT programs, and certain health science classes. Griggs said in those cases they are taking proactive measures to make sure students stay safe.

Shasta College has 14,399 students, according to Griggs.
