COVID REPORT: Three New Cases Confirmed Today; Two of Three Local Alert Levels Lowered From 'Moderate' to 'New Normal'


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

A total of 515 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19, after three new cases were reported today.

Two of the county’s three Risk Alert Levels — the Health Care System Capacity and Effectiveness of Disease Control — improved and moved from level two or yellow, into level one or green. The shift in Health Care System Capacity is due to trends in hospitalized COVID-19 patients and availability of critical medical resources. The shift in Effectiveness of Disease Control is due to effectiveness of community mitigation and public health efforts to control the spread of COVID-19.  

The Spread of COVID-19 Alert Level remains at level two or yellow, which keeps the overall alert level at two or level yellow. Visit humboldtgov.org/dashboard to view the county’s Alert Level Assessment tool.
