Beginning today, the Humboldt County Joint Information Center will release geographic information about confirmed COVID-19 cases on a weekly basis.
After gathering weeks of statistics, Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich has determined the case count has reached the minimum public health threshold required to release this additional information about the location of cases.
Positive cases will be reported from three regions:
- Northern Humboldt, which extends south from Humboldt County’s border with Del Norte County to Highway 299.
- Greater Humboldt Bay Area, which extends south from Highway 299 to Highway 36.
- Southern Humboldt, which extends south from Highway 36 to Humboldt County’s southern border with Mendocino County.
Currently, Humboldt County has 9 cases in Northern Humboldt, 40 cases in the Greater Humboldt Bay Area and 3 cases in Southern Humboldt.
This geographic information will be provided every Friday for the duration of the incident.
