COVID REPORT: Only One New Case Confirmed for the Second Day in a Row, Joint Information Center Says


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Humboldt County’s total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases now stands at 361, after one additional case was reported today.

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said that reporting only one case for two days is welcome relief from recent periods of rapid increase. “Two days is not a trend, but once again, I want to thank the community for helping to keep our case counts favorable compared to many areas of the state and nation,” she said. “We all benefit when we are able to slow transmission of this virus, and doing so takes all of us remaining committed to wearing facial coverings, avoiding gatherings outside of our household units and practicing physical distancing at all times in public.”

Today’s alert level stands at three or level orange. Visit humboldtgov.org/dashboard to view the county’s Alert Level Assessment tool.
