COVID REPORT: Fifty-Seven (57) New Cases Confirmed Since Friday; Mass Vaccination Clinics Planned This Week


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

A total of 3,124 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 after 57 new cases have been reported since Friday.  

Recent reports from local providers indicate that some patients seeking care for mild cold- or allergy-like symptoms test positive for COVID-19. Health officials point out that many people who contract the virus will experience mild symptoms, which makes it more likely an infected person will pass the virus along to others before they realize they’re sick and possibly expose someone who could be more prone to complications. 

Public Health officials renewed their call for community members to get tested regularly, saying anyone who thinks they have a cold, food poisoning or allergies should isolate and get tested for COVID-19. For a full list of no-cost testing options, go to humboldtgov.org/COVIDTestRegistration.  

Humboldt County Public Health, in partnership with local approved vaccinators, is planning three large-scale vaccination clinics this week where approximately 2,500 vaccines are expected to be administered. Of those, 1,500 are scheduled as second doses and 1,000 as first doses. Vaccination is available by appointment to people age 70 and over, health care workers, K-12 educators and support staff, emergency services workers and licensed child care providers. County residents can be notified when an appointment is available for their age group by filling out the online COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Form.
