Contact investigations determined one previous case was acquired through travel outside of the area, and another was acquired through community transmission.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said, “Travel will be an ongoing concern, but the virus is here in Humboldt County and circulating in our community. We should all continue to practice social distancing and other measures that can decrease transmission risk as businesses start to reopen.” Two cases remain under investigation.
