Ten new cases of COVID-19 were reported today. Humboldt County’s total case count stands at 255.

Today marks the first time a single day’s report reached double digits. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Frankovich said that hitting this milestone is unsurprising. “We’re no longer returning to periods with zero case counts as we did in the past. This indicates that there’s still more work to do to ensure that people understand the increasing risk of exposure when outside the home or when gathering with others,” she said. “Public Health is all of us right now. Every single person in our community plays a role in limiting transmission of this virus.”

Dr. Frankovich encouraged all residents to recommit to prevention measures that increase safety. Those include wearing facial coverings, refraining from gathering with non-household members, eliminating non-essential travel, washing hands regularly and maintaining physical distancing of at least six feet at all times.

Today’s alert level stands at three or level orange. Visit humboldtgov.org/dashboard to view the county’s Alert Level Assessment tool.
