COVID REPORT: Another Person in Their Eighties Dies; 26 New Cases Confirmed Since Friday


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

A Humboldt County resident has died with COVID-19, and 26 additional cases have been reported since the most recent report Friday. One case recorded previously was determined to be from another jurisdiction and was deducted from the count. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 3,473.

The person who died was in their 80s. This marks the 36th death related to COVID-19. Humboldt County Public Health and Emergency Operations Center staff extend their condolences to the person’s friends and loved ones.  

Public Health recently updated its Travel Guidance from November 2020 to include recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for testing before and after traveling, stating it is recommended to get tested one to three days before travel and three to five days after returning.  

The advisory points to CDC and California Department of Public Health guidance that still strongly discourages all non-essential travel beyond 120 miles from one’s place of residence, or to other states or countries. In addition:  

  • Do not travel if sick.
  • If traveling, reduce risk by wearing a face mask and distancing, avoid spending time indoors with people you don’t live with, limit the number of people you interact with, don’t share vehicles with those you don’t live with and avoid or limit meals and gatherings with people you don’t live with.
  • Upon return, plan to quarantine up to 14 days depending on conditions. 

“Vaccination is helping to make travel safer but there is significant concern about variants and so, until we know more, it is important to continue to exercise caution in order to minimize the spread of COVID-19 variants,” the updated Humboldt County Travel Guidance states.
