From the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich issued an updated Health Order further clarifying and enhancing the Shelter in Place requirements for county residents.
The updated order addresses county residents’ concerns regarding tourists visiting the area, prohibiting short-term rental properties, including hotels, vacation rentals and campgrounds, from renting to non-County residents.
Additionally, the order further limits activity in parks and other outdoor recreational areas that facilitate public gathering.
The order clarifies the definition of essential businesses, recognizing those businesses that support the County’s response to COVID-19 and eliminating the exemption for businesses that “supply products which would enhance the quality of life.”
This updated order will remain in effect until rescinded by the Health Officer. Read the updated order here.
Dr. Teresa Frankovich and Sheriff William Honsal will further discuss this new order and the implications for Humboldt County at tonight’s Virtual Town Hall. The community can watch this town hall meeting live at:
