  • 2.23.2022 – Shasta County’s Disease Detectives and the Fight Against COVID-19 – A reader commented on Facebook to make us aware of narrative in our article that did not match the data table we had provided in the article. We had incorrectly cited Shasta County’s death rate next to a table that correctly indicated the death rate. We have corrected the narrative portion of the article to match the data table and placed a correction notice.
