A 35th Humboldt County resident has died with COVID-19, and 11 new cases were reported today. Two cases reported previously were determined to be duplicates, so they have been removed from the county’s case count. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 3,392.
The community member who died was in their 70s. Staff from Humboldt County Public Health and the Emergency Operations Center extend their sympathies to the person’s family, friends and caregivers.
