COVID REPORT: Fourteen New Cases Confirmed Today, Joint Information Center Says


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Fourteen new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Humboldt County today. A previously recorded case was determined to be from another jurisdiction, so the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 3,383.  

In related news, 23 Disaster Health Care Volunteers (DHVs) were sworn in Monday to assist with the ongoing vaccination effort. That makes a total of 156 volunteers — 123 DHVs, 31 Community Emergency Response Team volunteers and two unaffiliated community volunteers — serving in various volunteer roles such as assisting with PPE and food distribution, alternate care site set up, vaccine support and administration and field reporting.  

Emergency Services Manager Ryan Derby said this is arguably the largest disaster volunteer effort in Humboldt County history. “Given the remote, rural nature of Humboldt County, it is important for us to embrace a whole-community approach to emergency management,” he said. “Trained community volunteers are absolutely crucial to the success of our operations — they are dedicated people who have answered the call to help their neighbors, friends and loved ones.  

“I am extremely thankful for their service to our community and wholeheartedly believe that their continued involvement will help us see a resolution to this lengthy emergency response.”
