COVID REPORT: Only Nine New Cases Confirmed Today, But a Return to the Purple Next Week Could be Possible, Public Health Says


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

A total of 3,219 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 after nine new cases were reported today. 

Humboldt County Public Health continues to scale up COVID-19 vaccination clinics as vaccine supply allows. To prepare for an anticipated increase in vaccine allocation and assist planning for future mass-vaccination efforts, Public Health vaccinated 1,000 county residents in about eight hours at a single clinic last week. This week, Public Health and local health care partners are expected to administer 2,300 doses at five large-scale clinics in addition to doses administered directly by local approved vaccinators to their patients. 

The California Department of Public Health today reported that Humboldt County has accumulated a week of metrics to move to a more restrictive tier under the state’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” with a positivity rate of 3.0% and an adjusted case rate of 8.2 per 100,000 residents. That means if local virus data does not improve, the county could be reassigned to the “Purple” or Widespread tier as early as next week. Health officials urge residents to limit the spread of COVID-19 by recommitting to prevention measures, adding that these measures support businesses staying open and protect the health of the community.
