Two new cases of COVID-19 were reported today, bringing to 544 the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said COVID-19 safety measures are increasingly important as flu season begins. “Coronavirus and influenza virus infections will be circulating at the same time in our community,” she said.
“Flu vaccination is another Public Health tool we have to protect members of our community who are most susceptible to flu or COVID complications and to protect our health care system capacity to serve those in need,” Dr. Frankovich said. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone over 6 months of age be vaccinated for flu.
