• This report represents an update to our total case numbers, as we have been conducting case investigations to correct reported cases that were duplicates or out-of-county records.

• If you’ve received a positive test result, please isolate yourself and notify your close contacts. Don’t wait for someone to contact you with instructions. If you do not develop symptoms, your isolation period ends 10 days after your first positive test. If you do develop symptoms, isolation ends 10 days after your symptoms began, and your symptoms are improving, and you’ve been fever-free without medication for at least 24 hours. If you are feeling better and are fever-free, you must still isolate for the full 10 days. Detailed information can be found on ShastaReady.org.

• Question: I’m an employer. What should I do if an employee tests positive? Answer: Send the employee home, and notify all workers who were within 6 feet of the person for at least 15 minutes, making every effort to protect that person’s confidentiality. Provide quarantine instructions and testing information to all close contacts. Report the case to Cal/OSHA within 8 hours of learning about the illness. If there are three or more cases in the workplace within a two-week period, report this to Public Health. The business doesn’t necessarily need to close.
