COVID REPORT: No New Cases Today, Says Joint Information Center; Category of Virus Acquisition Has Been Determined For All Previous Humboldt County Cases


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

No additional cases of COVID-19 were reported today. Humboldt County’s case count remains at 133.

The means of transmission has been determined for all known cases. Of the 133 residents who have tested positive for COVID-19, 23 were acquired through community transmission, 28 were acquired through travel and 82 contracted the virus through contact with a known case.

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich emphasized the importance of personal responsibility in containing COVID-19. “As we watch what is happening across the state and even in our community, I think it is important for our community to recognize that we are at a crossroads,” she said. “We can embrace the use of all the preventive measures we have, such as use of facial coverings and social distancing; we can choose not to gather with people outside our household, even extended family members; our business owners can follow the safety plans they have developed for the benefit of their employees and their customers, or we can choose to pretend that this pandemic is not real and increase risk for our friends and neighbors. It is really that simple.”

“Every time you leave home without a facial covering or choose to gather households for a party or crowd into a restaurant or bar, you are making a choice that may impact your entire community,” Frankovich said. “At this time, it is more important than ever that our choices serve to make us more rather than less safe.”
