REDDING, Calif. - As cases climb across Shasta County, many business owners are wondering if they too will have to shut down or rollback on reopening.

Shasta County remains off the governor’s watch list. But Public Health warns it could happen if the people don't follow the guidelines

According to the California Department of Public Health, counties get on the watch list if the state sees a county has a huge spike in community transmission, which means a jump of 100 cases per 100,000 people. The state also looks at an increase in hospitalized coronavirus patients, as well as the number of beds and ventilators that are available.

“This is no longer up to public health to be able to control these things,” said Kerri Schuette, a spokesperson for the Shasta Health & Human Services Agency Spokesperson.

“This is up to our community to do their part, to take ownership of our numbers and transmission.”

To stay off the watch list, Public Health emphasizing people wear those face coverings, continue to practice social distancing and to limit everyday activities. Click Here to view the state's list.
