Anyone who has a hard time getting relief from the extreme heat in Shasta County can take shelter in one of several cooling centers. The air conditioned spaces are open to the public. The new community center in the City of Shasta Lake at the Civic Center on Main Street is open from Noon to 6PM. Disposable masks and hand sanitizer are provided, and people are checked at the door for fever and other COVID-19 symptoms. In Redding, the Mount Shasta Mall is open until 7PM and all three Shasta County libraries are open as well. Hours and limitations can be found at shastalibraries.org. Some signs of heat stroke include altered mental state, red hot dry skin, rapid pulse, throbbing headache and confusion or unconsciousness.
