YREKA, Calif. — For only the second time since the pandemic began, Siskiyou County Public health has reported a death caused by coronavirus. The first coronavirus death in Siskiyou County happened just two weeks ago, reported on November 10.

"SCPH expresses its sincere condolences to the person’s family and friends. To protect the privacy of this person and their family, we will not be giving out any further information at this time," the agency said. "This is another tragic reminder that all Siskiyou County residents must take action to slow the spread of the virus by following all applicable guidance and recommendations from the Public Health Department. It is essential that the public practice preventative measures to protect themselves, their family and their community."

With coronavirus cases surging in many areas of California, state officials rolled Siskiyou County back to its most restrictive level for coronavirus measures last week. Tier 1 (purple), which the state uses to characterize "widespread" presence of COVID-19, now accounts for the vast majority of the state.

"Community spread poses an even higher threat to people in increased risk categories," Siskiyou County health officials said. "Those individuals should continue to stay home as much as possible to limit their exposure to the virus. People at increased risk include adults over 65 years old and persons with chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes and lung disease."

People are asked to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by staying home if sick, washing hands often, wearing a face covering in public, practicing social distancing, and avoiding gatherings — including family gatherings.
