Humboldt County’s total COVID-19 case count rose to 217, as 12 additional cases have been reported. While this is the largest single-day increase since the outbreak began, today’s report includes all new cases since Friday’s report.

Since last Monday’s update of case distribution by age, 28 cases have been diagnosed locally. Two of those were reported in people over the age of 50, while 26 were between the ages of 0 and 49.

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich pointed out that the long-term impacts of COVID-19 are unknown even for relatively healthy people. “We’ve seen many positive cases associated with gatherings of friends and related to travel,” Dr. Frankovich said. “I’d ask everyone to consider their own health and the health of their loved ones, especially those who are medically vulnerable before getting together with friends. It’s vital that we all do what we can to limit spread of this virus.”

Today’s alert level stands at a three. Visit to view the county’s Alert Level Assessment tool.
