REDDING, Calif. - Shasta County’s coronavirus cases are climbing. On Wednesday, the county saw about two new dozen cases.

Shasta County Public Health says a majority of these surge in cases are coming from the Windsor Redding Care Center and the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. Public Health says it continues to work with the School of Supernatural Ministry and that students are encouraged to wear masks and stay home if they're feeling sick.

“We're encouraged by at least within the BSSM community that message is being pushed out to the students by their leadership,” said Robin Schurig, the Public Health Branch Director for the Shasta Health & Human Services Agency.

But other health leaders believe that Bethel needs to step up.

“To the extent that Bethel's leadership needs to step up, I think it matters to the people who are taking care of sick people,” said Dean Germano, the CEO of the Shasta Community Health Center.

BSSM says students were required to get tested and quarantine for 14 days before attending school.

Both Public Health and Bethel believe, that these cases are coming from students interacting outside of classes.

Shasta County Public Health said even without the positive cases from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, the county would still be in the red tier heading into the purple. Public Health adds that they have not seen an outbreak within the Bethel Church community.
