Humboldt County Public Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich has been answering questions from local media agencies via recorded video message. Here’s her most recent dispatch, and here are the topics discussed:
- What is the county is doing to support healthcare workers? (0:00)
is the county’s access to data from commercial COVID-19 testing
we be wearing masks? (3:00)
it safer for seniors to shop during senior-only hours? (4:16)
is the difference between “sheltering in place” and
is equipped to perform COVID-19 testing? (5:43)
is the process for securing testing capacity in Humboldt County?
Public Health taking steps to contact people who recently returned to
Humboldt State from elsewhere in the state? (7:50)
would Public Health be doing differently if it had an unlimited
supply of COVID-19 testing material? (9:00)
- Is the county considering whether to “shut down” the airport? Can it? (10:00)
Dr. Frankovich has committed to answering questions three times a week (barring unforeseen emergencies, presumably). Got a question you want asked? Let us know.
