COVID REPORT: Thirty-Three New Cases Confirmed Today; Not-Yet-Vaccinated Health Care Workers Invited to Register for Appointment


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

A total of 2,171 county residents have tested positive for COVID-19, after 33 new cases were reported today. 

All Phase 1A health care workers are encouraged to fill out the Healthcare Workforce survey linked below to receive an invitation to a COVID-19 vaccination clinic. That includes people who work in health care settings or long-term care facilities, home health caregivers and community health workers, including promotoras.  

The form can be linked to here: forms.gle/AFys9CLHFHYg5bcC6.  

“If you’re a health care worker and haven’t yet been vaccinated, register now,” said Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Ian Hoffman. “In order for us to move onto the next priority group, we need to finish vaccinating health care workers in preparation for opening up vaccination clinics to additional groups, including older adults.” 

The Humboldt County COVID-19 Data Dashboard has been updated to include “Unknown” as an additional category for transmission type, in addition to Contact to a Known Case, Travel-Acquired, Community Transmission and Under Investigation.  

A person who tested positive for COVID-19 will be assigned as Unknown if the individual is:

  • Unable to be contacted
  • Not returning calls after initial contact
  • Unwilling to cooperate with Public Health.

Cases that met these criteria previously were assigned as Under Investigation. Dr. Hoffman said this new category will offer more clarity on the outcome of investigations. 

“If you test positive, Public Health is here to offer support in keeping you and your loved ones safe. That means we need to talk to you,” Dr. Hoffman said. “Please answer the call. Our contact investigators are here to help slow the spread of the virus, and that requires all of us.”
