Humboldt County Adds Another Three Confirmed Cases, Two of Which Are At Alder Bay


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Three additional Humboldt County residents tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 67.

Follow-up testing at Alder Bay Assisted Living in Eureka found two more residents had become positive for COVID-19. Public Health will continue to work with the facility to monitor residents and staff and will conduct ongoing testing to identify any additional cases as early as possible.

As the county moves into a broader reopening of some business sectors, Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich pointed out that while the increased case count is unlikely a result of last week’s soft reopening of retail businesses, health officials are paying close attention to our transmission rates and case counts to set the pace of additional reopenings. “As we can see with our case count, COVID-19 is circulating in our community,” Frankovich said. “We will be monitoring our data closely to know when and how to move forward.”
