Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

A Humboldt County resident has died with COVID-19, and 45 new cases of the virus have been reported since Friday. A total of 3,980 county residents have tested positive for the virus.  

The person who died was in their 60s, marking the county’s 40th death related to COVID-19. Humboldt County Public Health and the Emergency Operations Center staff share their sympathies with all community members who have lost friends and loved ones to the virus. 

One previously reported hospitalization of a person who tested positive for COVID-19 was determined to be unrelated to the virus and has been removed from the county’s count. Public Health is reporting one new hospitalization today for a cumulative total of 165. 

Humboldt County Public Health will hold a Johnson & Johnson vaccination clinic on Friday, May 14, at the Samoa Women’s Club located at 115 Rideout Ave. in Samoa. Clinic hours are scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. This clinic is for county residents age 18 and older. Walk-ins are welcome, but registration is strongly encouraged. Sign up in advance at myturn.ca.gov.
