A total of 3,180 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 after 20 additional cases were reported today.
The California Department of Public Health has released updated guidance to allow youth and recreational adult sports to resume practice and competition in all tiers of the state’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” when certain conditions are met.
Beginning today, the state will allow competitions of high- and low-contact sports to resume regardless of indoor or outdoor setting if a county’s case rate is 14 or lower. Spectators are not allowed for any sport, but the state does allow age-appropriate supervision of youth sports by immediate family members. All school- and community-based teams and organizations are expected to follow the state’s guidance.
General guidance for all sports includes the following:
When a county’s case rate is 7-14 per 100,000 residents, the state additionally requires all coaches and players age 13 and over in the high-contact sports of football, rugby and water polo to be tested weekly. When competing in these sports, testing should be performed with results made available within 24 hours of play. For a list of no-cost testing options, go to humboldtgov.org/COVIDTestRegistration.
