COVID REPORT: Seventy-Four New Cases Since Friday; Three New Hospitalizations, Including Person in Their 30s


Press release from the Humboldt County Public Health Division:

Seventy-four new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Humboldt County since Friday. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 4,971.

Three new hospitalizations also were reported since Friday, including one person in their 30s, one in their 50s and one in their 70s.

Since the last weekly update on July 19, 193 county residents have tested positive for COVID-19, including 24 children under age 10. Nine county residents have been hospitalized over the last week. Their age ranges are as follows:

  • 1 person in their 30s
  • 1 person in their 40s
  • 3 people in their 50s
  • 1 person in their 60s
  • 2 people in their 70s
  • 1 person over the age of 80.

Nearly 6% of the county population remains only partially vaccinated, and public health officials warn that partial vaccination may leave a person vulnerable to COVID-19 infection, especially to variants like Delta. Full vaccination is the most effective way to prevent serious illness and death from COVID-19 and to protect children and other members of the community who cannot get vaccinated. Full vaccination is achieved two weeks after one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the second dose in a two-dose series of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. 

This week, Public Health vaccination clinics are scheduled at sites around the county, including Willow Creek. COVID-19 vaccines are also available through health care providers in Eastern Humboldt. For information, contact K’ima:w Medical Center in Hoopa at 530-625-4261, United Indian Health Services in Weitchpec at 530-625-4300 or Open Door Willow Creek Community Health Center at 530-629-3111.
