COVID REPORT: No New Cases Confirmed Today, Joint Information Center Says


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

No additional cases of COVID-19 were reported today, marking the first day in October with zero cases. The last day with zero positive tests reported was Sept. 18. Humboldt County’s total confirmed case count remains 544.

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said that residents should continue to focus on COVID-19 prevention measures while emphasizing that activity and exercise are also an important part of public health. 

“This is a great time to get outside and take advantage of warmer weather,” Dr. Frankovich said. “Getting outdoors regularly to walk, bike, hike or engage in other low-risk activities can boost energy levels and improve both your mental and physical health. We’re so incredibly lucky to live here in beautiful Humboldt where we can enjoy being active outdoors while easily distancing and following all COVID-19 safety precautions.”
