Three additional Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19, bringing to 157 the total number of residents who have contracted the virus. Six additional people tested positive but were here visiting family and friends and do not reside in Humboldt County. These six cases are not included in the county’s total.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich pointed out that although these cases will not be reflected in the total case count, they further emphasize the need to adhere to safety measures, including maintaining social distancing and postponing or canceling non-essential travel.
“Each one of us can make choices to lessen the impacts of this pandemic,” Dr. Frankovich said. “Each one of us can choose to wear a facial covering when we leave our household. Each one of us can choose to stay home rather than attend a celebration or gathering. Our community is resilient when we work together, and that commitment to each other has never been more important than it is now.”
