No additional cases of COVID-19 were confirmed Saturday. The total case count remains at 52.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said this slower period in new cases affords residents the opportunity to intensify their preparedness efforts. “As I mentioned yesterday, with the first county-level state modeling received this past week, we are able to review their perspective on COVID-19 projections and relate it to our on-the-ground efforts,” she said. “We will be sharing that information this coming week and talking about what it can and cannot tell us about what may lie ahead.”
The following information is based on the most recent data available for all confirmed cases:

Notes on patient and demographic data
To protect the identity of people with COVID-19, their specific location of residence will not be disclosed. The Humboldt County Public Health Branch is legally responsible for protecting personal health information, including residence address, specific age, recent travel, the identities and locations of any contacts, the provider of medical treatment, the course of illness and any other information that might identify an individual with or exposed to the virus unless it serves the interests of public health to do so.
Although we understand it is of interest to residents, providing location and demographic information to the general public does nothing to slow the spread of illness. Humboldt County is experiencing untraceable person-to-person transmission, also known as “community spread,” and there is no place that can be considered safe. To reduce your chances of acquiring or spreading COVID-19, avoid travel, wash your hands, keep yourself and your environment clean, follow the shelter-in-place order, and do not leave home for any reason unless it is absolutely necessary to do so.
The following case information is provided daily Monday through Saturday:
