Four new cases of COVID-19 were reported today, bringing to 221 the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus.
While Humboldt County has fared better in terms of case counts than many other areas of the state according to Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich, recent trends are a cause for concern.
“It took 105 days for our county to reach 109 cases, but we doubled that number in just 45 days,” Dr. Frankovich said. “We can reverse that trend and stay off of the state’s County Monitoring List by using all those simple but effective safety measures we’ve been discussing.” Those measures include wearing a face covering, washing hands regularly, maintaining physical distancing and avoiding gathering with those outside of one’s household.
Today’s alert level stands at a three. Visit humboldtgov.org/dashboard to view the county’s Alert Level Assessment tool.
