COVID REPORT: 44 New Cases Confirmed, Highest Single-Day Total in Over Two Months


Press release from the Humboldt County Public Health Division:

Forty-four (44) new cases of COVID-19 and one new hospitalization of a person in their 50s have been reported in Humboldt County today. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 4,897. 

Today’s is the highest single-day case count reported since May 13, when strong public health measures were in still in place statewide. This week, the seven-day average positivity rate reached 11%, the highest rate for Humboldt County at any point in the last 12 months. Positivity rate is the percentage of tests performed that came back positive and is a critical measure of how widespread infection is in the community.

Vaccination is a safe and effective way to prevent the spread of the virus and to protect against serious illness. Out of more than 20 million vaccinated Californians, fewer than 1% contracted the virus and only 0.003% required hospitalization, according to the California Department of Public Health. “The data is clear,” said Dr. Mark Ghaly, Secretary of the California Department of Health & Human Services Agency, in a statement earlier this month. “Nearly all new COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths are preventable.”
