• Shasta County remains in the orange (moderate) category of the new four-tier system after the state updated its weekly numbers yesterday. To move forward, a county must meet the next tier’s criteria for two consecutive weeks. If a county’s metrics worsen for two consecutive  weeks, it will be assigned a more restrictive tier.
