COVID REPORT: Forty-Two (42) New Cases Confirmed Today, Joint Information Center Says


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Forty-two additional cases of COVID-19 were reported today. A case reported earlier this week was determined to be from out of the county, so the total number of Humboldt County residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 1,998. 

In vaccine-related news, today the California Department of Public Health’s “California’s COVID-19 Vaccine Plan” was posted to Humboldt County’s website at humboldtgov.org/2872/Vaccine-Info.  It contains easy-to-understand information about state and local vaccine planning.   

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Ian Hoffman said, “We want the community to see clearly the vaccine priorities that have been set by the state and how we’re moving through the tiers here in Humboldt County.” 

Currently, Humboldt County is inviting providers in Phase 1A-tier 1 and 2 to vaccination clinics, and is expected to extend invites to tier 3 by the end of this week. Phase 1A is estimated to involve approximately 10,000 people locally and includes but is not limited to staff at acute care facilities and dialysis centers, paramedics and EMTs and staff at primary care clinics and laboratories, dentists and community health outreach workers. “We have a clear plan that we are working through and will continue to make information available as quickly as we can,” Dr. Hoffman said.
