COVID REPORT: 39 New Cases Confirmed Since Thursday; Workplace Mask Standards Updated


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Thirty-nine new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Humboldt County since the most recent report on Thursday. Two previously reported positives have been removed after one case was found to be from another jurisdiction, and another was determined to be a false positive. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 4,499.

Six county residents have been hospitalized with COVID-19 since Thursday’s report, including two people in their 50s, one in their 60s, two in their 70s and one over the age of 80.  

Since the last update of weekly data on June 14, Humboldt County has seen 65 cases of COVID-19. The 30-39 age group represented the largest increase with 19 cases reported over the previous week, and five children between the ages of 0 and 9 have also tested positive for the virus in that time. Nine county residents have been hospitalized in the last week. Their age ranges are as follows:

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

Late last week, Cal/OSHA revised its COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards that regulate workplaces throughout the state. Updated rules now allow for employees to forego mask wearing in most situations if their employer confirms the worker’s vaccination status while unvaccinated workers must continue to wear a face covering in the workplace. Workers should consult their employer for workplace-specific policies related to COVID-19. Business owners and employers are urged to read the guidance in detail and view additional business resources from Cal/OSHA at dir.ca.gov/dosh/coronavirus/ETS.html.
