Thirty-nine new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed since the most recent report on Thursday.
The Public Health Data Taskforce recently completed a routine audit of previous illness, hospitalization and death reports and is making the following adjustments:
- Twenty-three previously reported COVID-19 positives have been removed either due to false positive test results, unconfirmed presumptive positive test results, or because the patient was determined not to have been a resident of Humboldt County. That leaves a total of 3,025 positive cases since the pandemic began.
- One hospitalization has been removed due to the false positive test result mentioned above, and one new hospitalization has been reported for a cumulative total of 124 hospitalizations.
In vaccination news, outreach to residents is underway to schedule more than 2,000 second-dose appointments this week. If your second-dose clinic date is within five days and you have not yet been contacted to schedule an appointment, please contact your provider or call the Joint Information Center at 707-441-5000.
