COVID REPORT: Thirty-Three (33) New Cases Confirmed; Four People Newly Hospitalized, Leaving Humboldt With 29 People Currently Hospitalized With The Virus — a New High


Press release from the Humboldt County Public Health Division:

Thirty-three new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Humboldt County today, bringing the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus to 5,841.

Four new hospitalizations also were reported today, including one person in their 30s, two in their 60s and one in their 70s. Currently, 29 county residents are hospitalized with COVID-19, marking a new high. Four additional county residents are being treated for the virus at out-of-area facilities. 

Humboldt County Public Health and other approved local vaccinators have administered a total of 140,534 doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination data on the Humboldt County Data Dashboard has been updated. Some highlights include:

  • Local vaccinators have administered 16,787 doses since the last weekly report, with a majority of those being first doses.
  • 69,522 Humboldt County residents are now fully vaccinated, representing 58.4% of the vaccine-eligible population age 12 or older and 51.4% of the county’s total population.

Health officials widely agree that getting vaccinated remains the single most important thing eligible residents can do to prevent serious illness from COVID-19 while also offering protection to those who aren’t able to get vaccinated. All available vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe outcomes, hospitalizations and death from the virus. Vaccine is available at Public Health clinics located throughout the county, and walk-ins are welcome. To make an appointment in advance, go to MyTurn.ca.gov.
