SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Shasta County supervisors signed off on a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom, asking him to ease up on the stay at home order restrictions.

The Board of Supervisors wants to re-open the economy as early as next week.

“This is simply a letter to the governor,” said District Three Supervisor Mary Rickert.
“We have no ability to tell him what we want, he's going to have to make that decision for Shasta County.”

The letter outlines the measures that would be put in place. Such as keeping stay at home orders for people 65 years or older or those with underlying health conditions, maintaining social distancing at local businesses, and allowing gatherings of up to 10 people just to name a few

“I feel like we can open,” said Terry Clausen of Redding. “Just like when you go to the grocery store you have to stay 10 feet away.”

Several people tell Action News Now as long the social distancing rules and guidelines are followed the stay at home order should be relaxed.

“To get past through this whole thing, we have to start getting back out there and kind of getting back to normal but with certain precautions,” said Danny Leaverton the owner of Vintage Public House.

But several public comments read on the record were against sending the letter to the governor. Claiming that lifting the measures too soon could cause a surge in coronavirus cases.
