Seven new cases of COVID-19 were reported today, bringing to 309 the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus.

The county has recorded 76 new cases since Aug. 1, and three new hospitalizations this week. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said the recent rate of infections and new hospitalizations emphasize the need for all county residents, businesses and organizations to work together to limit spread of COVID-19.

“Early on, the impact of this virus was much higher in heavily populated areas but we are now clearly beginning to see an increasing impact in rural America, including Humboldt County,” Dr. Frankovich said. “Public Health, the Emergency Operations Center and all community partners continue their work to increase testing capacity, expand contact tracing and support the health care system, but ultimately Humboldt County residents are really the most critical response team for this pandemic. Everyone doing their part to limit spread will help to keep transmission rates manageable and protect our community.”

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