COVID-19 Q & A With Jackson And Shasta Counties

Covid-19 virus

School days approach for students in Jackson County; they've already begun for students in Shasta County. But the COVID-19 pandemic lingers in both places and affects how schools operate.

Redding Schools opted to bring about 50% of students to school at any one time; Medford and Ashland will be remote-only until November.

We get a broader picture of the virus spread and containment in our weekly Q & A with medical directors from Jackson and Shasta Counties.

Dr. Jim Shames returns to the program from Jackson County, and we welcome back Tim Mapes, a public information officer from Shasta County.
