The Redding Health Department was notified Tuesday of two members of the Redding Elementary School community that tested positive for COVID-19. They have been instructed to remain home in isolation for 10 days. The cases were contained to two classrooms in one wing of the building. Anyone who is considered a possible close contact of those tested positive --within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes of a confirmed case--have been notified. State Department of Public Health advised quarantine protocols have been put in place. The Redding Health Department says COVID-19 is spread mainly via person-to-person contact through contaminated air droplets from coughing and sneezing by an infected person. Non-essential travel and social gatherings should be avoided.
