Humboldt County Joint Information Center press release:
The number of COVID-19 cases in Humboldt County is 228, after seven more cases have been reported today.
Travel in and out of the county and gatherings of friends and family continue to be significant drivers of new infections, according to Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich. “Most of the places that local residents travel to or have visitors from are experiencing much higher rates of COVID-19 infections, making it more likely to interact with someone who doesn’t go with COVID,” she said.
The California State Health Officer and Dr. Frankovich both asked residents to stay close to home and limit travel as much as possible. “We are so lucky that we have some of the most beautiful areas in the world here in our backyard,” Frankovich said. “I would encourage everyone to take advantage of this and postpone or cancel any non-essential off-site trips. And please, ask your friends and family to wait for a safer time to visit you here in Humboldt. It̵7;s best a way to protect your family and your community. ”
Today’s alert level is three. Visit humboldtgov.org/dashboard to view the county’s Alert Level Assessment tool.
