Five new cases of COVID-19 were reported today, bringing to 658 the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus. 

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today issued a travel advisory in response to the recent increase in the statewide case rate. The advisory strongly discourages non-essential travel and urges residents to stay close to home as much as possible. Travelers coming into California are asked to self-quarantine for 14 days, and anyone who leaves the state or travels outside of the country should also self-quarantine for two weeks upon return.  

Locals traveling out of the area and out-of-town visitors traveling to Humboldt County for gatherings continue to be a big driver of local cases, according to Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Josh Ennis. “The state’s travel advisory acknowledges that our experience locally is similar across the state, and further emphasizes that we as individuals have to make changes in order to slow the spread of this virus,” he said.
