COVID REPORT: Two New Deaths, 132 New Cases Confirmed Since Friday, Joint Information Center Says


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Two Humboldt County residents have died with COVID-19, and 132 additional cases have been reported since Friday. Two previously reported cases were removed, so the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus is now 2,624.

One of the people who died was in their 70s and the other in their 90s. Humboldt County Public Health staff extended their condolences to the friends and family of these individuals. 

The California Department of Public Health today announced that the “Regional Stay Home Order” will be lifted for the entire state, and all counties again will be required to follow COVID-19 safety measures as outlined by the “Blueprint for a Safer Economy.” The state’s “Limited Stay Home Order” has also ended. 

The announcement has little impact locally because the “Regional Stay Home Order” was never applied to the Northern California region. Humboldt County remains in the “Purple” or widespread tier. For more information about the “Blueprint,” go to covid19.ca.gov/stay-home-except-for-essential-needs

This week, Public Health and other local approved vaccinators expect to receive a total of 1,875 COVID-19 vaccine doses—600 Moderna first doses, 300 Moderna second doses and 975 Pfizer first doses. 

Public Health continues to schedule mass vaccination clinics for Phase 1A health care workers. Two of the three planned clinics this week will focus on health care workers who have not yet received their first dose, and the third will be for medical personnel who are ready for their second dose. Appointments for health care workers are invitation only. 

Providers approved to administer vaccine will reach out directly to their patients who are over 75 as vaccine for that phase becomes available. Those who do not have a provider or whose doctor is not an approved vaccinator can fill out the newly launched online vaccine interest form to be notified when appointments are available for their priority group. To access the form, visit humboldtgov.org/InterestForm
