Humboldt County’s total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases now stands at 320, after 11 new cases were reported since Friday.
According to the most recent data, the 20 to 29 age group represents the largest number of cases, at 22 percent or one in five local infections. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said this group plays an important role in limiting spread of COVID-19.
“Young adults are an important part of our workforce in health care, food service, retail and other industries that our entire community relies on,” Dr. Frankovich said. “If you feel ill, stay home and call your provider or call the Joint Information Center to find out about testing options. It truly takes every one of us to keep our community as safe as possible.”
