Humboldt County Public Health officials said this increase in hospitalizations is a reminder that anyone can develop symptoms of COVID-19 that require medical treatment, especially those with underlying health conditions. They went on to urge county residents to continue following safety measures to prevent infections, adding that cases and hospitalizations often follow gatherings, celebrations and events like those typically associated with this weekend’s Super Bowl.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says gathering virtually or with one’s own household is the safest way to watch the Super Bowl this year. For those who do choose to host or attend a gathering, health officials recommend the following:
