Humboldt County’s COVID-19 case count rose to 169 after two additional cases were reported today.
Thirty-four county residents have tested positive since July 1. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich attributed these recent cases, in part, to family and community gatherings.
“While it may be tempting to think we can make exceptions and attend a celebration or get together with friends, the best way to protect each other is to avoid gathering with those who live outside of our household and to use safety precautions when we’re at work or out and about in general,” Dr. Frankovich said. “Adhering to these safety measures will give our community its best chance to navigate this pandemic as successfully as possible.”
