Humboldt County’s total number of residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 now stands at 293, after seven new cases were reported today.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich reminds the community that a stocked emergency kit is important to have on hand for all kinds of events, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Many of the supplies that are recommended to keep on hand for unexpected emergencies such as earthquakes and power outages can be just as useful during a pandemic,” Dr. Frankovich said. “Keeping a store of non-perishable food and extra prescription medications can come in handy if someone in your home becomes ill with COVID-19 and everyone needs to stay put during quarantine.”
