SHASTA COUNTY, Calif.- Shasta County isn’t ruling out cracking down on businesses not following state health orders.


Shasta County public health spokesperson, Tim Mapes tells Action News Now, public health understands many businesses are struggling, so they'll work with those that aren't complying, but could take legal action against business not following guidelines.


Action News Now spoke to business owners who weighed in.


“I don't fault people for you know wanting to keep their business afloat, that's definitely important,” says Nell Cox of Damburger in Redding. “We decided from the beginning we're going to do what we can to help our community and just take care of ourselves.”


The owner of Cascade Barber Shop, Darrell Pizzagoni tells Action News Now it’s only fair that all business comply.


Public health stressing they want to work with businesses not following the guidelines to provide whatever assistance they may need, but say it creates an uneven playing field for those businesses that are following guidelines.


Therefore, they're asking everyone to do their part and that means wearing a face mask when out in public, practicing good hand hygiene, and avoiding any type of gatherings.
