Today we're hearing from Shasta County, where the first COVID-19 case was discovered in the North State. Despite a recent uptick in cases, Shasta County, with larger towns like Redding and Anderson, is fairing relatively well. It is one of the most populated Northern California Counties that is not on the State’s Watch list. We’re going to try to find out why.
We’re also going to look into the status of COVID-19 testing, who gets tested, how to get the test, and how long it takes to get results, and problems when testing gets delayed too much.
