A total of 599 county residents have tested positive for COVID-19, after seven cases were reported today.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich encouraged residents to get tested as soon as possible if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. “To be effective in controlling spread of COVID, early detection is best,” she said. “Get tested as soon as possible when you realize you are ill by contacting your health care provider.”
For those who do not have a health care provider, please contact the Joint Information Center at 707-441-5000 for assistance. “Testing early when ill and getting routine testing when you are not ill can help to detect COVID-19 early, which helps to protect everyone in our community,” Dr. Frankovich added.
Symptoms of COVID-19 can include cough, fever, headache, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea and/or loss of taste or smell. For a full list of symptoms, go to cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html.
