At present there are no known cases of the coronavirus in Redding. Out of an abundance of caution, all Park and Recreation and Heritage Center programs at the Redding Community Center are cancelled until further notice. The extended day childcare program will remain open until the end of day today, and then close until further notice. First Selectwoman Julia Pemberton says she understands that these decisions will impact Redding residents, but they are being made in the best interests of the community as a whole. The Superintendent and administrators of Easton, Redding, Region 9 schools are working closely with local and state departments of public health, as well as the state department of education, and are engaged in contingency planning in the event of a school closing.
