More than 10,000 Humboldt County residents have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the latest update on the Humboldt County Data Dashboard.
A total of 31,803 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered locally. Other updates to the Dashboard include:
- 10,435 fully vaccinated residents represents 7.7% of the county’s total population and 9.3% of residents who are over age 16 and currently qualify for vaccination.
- More than 15% of county residents have received one or more doses, which means about one out of six residents has some protection against COVID-19.
- Nearly one out of three residents age 75 and over are fully vaccinated.
Vaccine data is updated each Wednesday. To access the Dashboard, go to humboldtgov.org/Dashboard. To view vaccine data only, visit humboldtgov.org/VaccineData.
Twelve new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Humboldt County today. A previously recorded case was determined to be from another jurisdiction, so the total number of county residents who have tested positive now stands at 3,230.
Humboldt County Public Health officials continue to press the State of California for clarity on its recently updated Youth and Recreational Adult Sports guidance. While the state prohibits spectators for adult sports, “age-appropriate supervision” of youth sports is allowed. Given the lack of a specific definition of that term, Public Health officials will not impose any restrictions on the number of immediate family members that can attend games or practices, but ask all those who attend a youth sports event to maintain physical distance from non-household members and wear a face covering at all times.
Humboldt County Public Health Director Michele Stephens said, “Humboldt County remains fully supportive of common sense rules and regulations that prevent the spread of COVID-19 but will not endorse a statewide approach that doesn’t truly take into account our local conditions and further harms small businesses that are the backbone of our community.”
