COVID REPORT: 13 New Cases Today; Free Crabs Tickets For People Who Get Vaxxed Before Saturday’s Game


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Thirteen additional cases of COVID-19 were reported in Humboldt County today. Two previously reported cases were removed from the county’s case count after one was determined to be a duplicate and another was found to be a false positive. The total number of county residents who have tested positive now stands at 4,462.

One hospitalization that was previously reported has been removed. Though the person tested positive for COVID-19, the reason they were hospitalized was unrelated to the virus. One new hospitalization of an unvaccinated person in their 40s also was reported today for a cumulative total of 199 hospitalizations.

Vaccination clinics organized by Humboldt County Public Health are scheduled this week in Eureka and Arcata, and walk-ins are welcome. To make an appointment in advance or view additional vaccination options, go to MyTurn.ca.gov.
