Three new cases of COVID-19 were reported today, bringing to 527 the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus.
Humboldt County is now in the “yellow” tier under the state’s four-tier “Blueprint to a Safer Economy,” based on local COVID-19 data. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said this move demonstrates the county’s dedication to safety measures.
“I want to thank everyone who has taken on this responsibility,” she said. “Unfortunately, we are not done dealing with COVID-19. It is very likely that counties across California will move up and down through the tiers over time. The good news is that if we keep following prevention measures, our county has a better chance at staying in the lower tiers and keeping most sectors of our business community operating. It will take all of us doing our part to achieve that.”
