Shasta County\’s blue dot is getting bigger. 1238 cases per million. 180,000 population
Whoever thought the warm weather would kill this virus, sure didn\’t know what the heck they were talking about. My husband thought for sure it would die down during our HOT summer. If anything it has spiked and my theory is, people are traveling. California has really ramped up the positive cases.
Shasta County, on Friday:
Confirmed Cases: 227
Currently Hospitalized in Shasta County: 4
Currently in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU): 1 –
Daily Deaths 1
We had around 30 when the Governor reopened our county with only 4 deaths. We\’ve now added 3 more deaths within this month with a total of 7. Friday it was a 50 yr old woman. Sad.
I don\’t need too much detail – just the important stats:
Total confirmed today
Currently in ICU
Deaths to Date – 7
My county sends out lengthy reports at 6pm every day even on the weekends.
Released from Isolation to Date
All that is just too much information. Just give it to me straight –
They also give the gender and age of the persons that tested positive for the day.
A girl under 13
A teenage girl
A woman in her 20s
A woman and man in their 30s
A woman and man in their 40s
The majority of California districts will start the new school year the way last school year ended: from home. Feel bad for the kids. 33 counties are on the state\’s monitoring list. Shasta and neighboring counties Siskiyou, Tehama and Trinity for now are not among the counties that are on the list. We\’re rural, but guess where everyone likes to go on vacation? I don\’t hold my breath – that will change. For right now, my county is giving families the choice – we have some Shasta County districts with as little as 27 children.
I don\’t know – I just don\’t know. Happy I am not having to make the big decisions.
