To the Shasta College Community:

There are many things to give thanks for during this coming week. Family and friends, whether they live near or far, feature prominently for many of us. 

If you decide to travel to be with loved ones during the holidays, please make sure you’re doing everything you can to keep yourself and them safe. There are steps you can take right now and while traveling that can help to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19. Although it can be a seemingly unfriendly thing to do, staying home is actually the best way to protect yourself and others and show how much you care. The CDC has released guidance that can be of further assistance regarding travel and holiday plans: 

With your help, we can help limit the spread of the disease by following campus, local, state and federal guidelines for COVID-19. This includes maintaining at least six feet of distance from people you don’t live with, wearing face coverings, washing your hands frequently and getting tested for the virus if you have symptoms or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19.

On behalf of all of those in our Campus Safety Office and the great work they have been doing for all of us, I would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone in our campus community and hope you all stay safe and healthy during this coming week of thankful reflection and celebration.
