COVID REPORT: Nine New Cases Confirmed Today, Joint Information Center Says; Vaccination More Important as Reopening Draws Near


From the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Nine new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Humboldt County today. One previously reported case was determined to be a false positive and removed. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 4,390. 

Two new hospitalizations were reported today. Since the beginning of the pandemic, a total of 192 people have been hospitalized and 46 local residents have died. None of them were vaccinated. 

Humboldt County will remain in the “Orange” or Moderate tier under the California “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” with a positivity rate of 3.6% and an adjusted case rate of 5 per 100,000 residents. 

As California moves toward retiring the Blueprint on June 15 and reopening all industry sectors statewide, Public Health officials stress the importance of increasing the number of vaccinated residents.

“We urge all Californians to get vaccinated to ensure that infection and hospitalization rates remain low across the state and that we can all return to the activities we love,” said Dr. Mark Ghaly, California Health and Human Services Secretary.

Vaccination clinics are scheduled tomorrow through Sunday in Petrolia and Eureka. Walk-ins are welcome at all Public Health clinics, or people may schedule in advance through MyTurn.ca.gov

Spanish-speaking staff will be on hand to assist community members navigate the vaccination process at the Sunday, June 13, vaccination clinic at College of the Redwoods. See below for this week’s schedule and a list of vaccines offered.
