COVID REPORT: Five New Cases Confirmed Today, Says Joint Information Center


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

The total number of Humboldt County residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 now stands at 393, after five additional cases were reported today.

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich today issued a revised Facial Coverings Order to align local policy with state guidance. She noted that residents may not notice much of a change since California counties have been required to follow the state’s requirements since they were issued in June.

“In April, I had issued a facial covering order here in Humboldt, which was followed by the state’s Public Health Officer Order in June. This new local revision references the state’s, so it’s easier for members of our community to navigate prevention measures,” Dr. Frankovich said. The state order describes the settings in which facial coverings are required for individuals over the age of 2 and when exemptions should be made. Most importantly, children under 2 years of age must not use facial coverings.

The revised order takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 3. Read the revised order here: humboldtgov.org/DocumentCenter/View/88931.

Today’s alert level stands at two or level yellow. Visit humboldtgov.org/dashboard to view the county’s Alert Level Assessment tool.
