The Humboldt County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) has reviewed more than 1,000 Reopening Plans since the online portal was launched May 13. Almost 850 plans have been certified.
COVID-19 safety guidance for each business sector is provided by the state as part of a four-stage plan to reopen California’s economy. That plan changes on a near daily basis, and updated guidance often is issued without notification, requiring counties to incorporate changes on short notice. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said the dynamic nature of this pandemic response requires jurisdictions to adapt quickly to changes made by the state.
“I appreciate that the state is allowing counties to set the pace of reopening certain businesses based on local data. Right now, the EOC is prioritizing the reopening of businesses and organizations that are associated with lower risk of virus transmission,” Dr. Frankovich said. “As these open, we will be monitoring our case counts, transmission rates, health care capacity and other factors to determine the best pace for moving forward.”
With retail openings beginning two weeks ago and restaurants starting to reopen tomorrow, Dr. Frankovich said, “It’s important that we use the strategy laid out early on, which is to ease restrictions gradually and monitor closely. This approach will help to keep our community safer, and additional sectors will be approved for reopening as quickly as safely possible.”
