Nine new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Humboldt County since the most recent report on Friday. A previous antigen-positive case has been reclassified as a PCR-positive case. This action was taken to avoid double counting a positive case. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 3,501.  

Public Health: CDPH Travel Guidance for Fully Vaccinated People 

Humboldt County Public Health will follow guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), which updated its Travel Advisory Friday to address fully vaccinated people, while continuing to advise those who are not fully vaccinated to delay travel.  

According to the CDPH, fully vaccinated travelers: 

  • are less likely to get and spread COVID-19, and can travel safely within the United States and California
  • should follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel guidance and are not required to test or quarantine before or after travel within the United States unless they have symptoms concerning for COVID-19 disease.  

CDPH has dropped its previous recommendation not to travel more than 120 miles from home. Instead it has offered new recommendations for non-essential travel of unvaccinated Californians who leave the state, which include testing before and after travel and quarantining upon returning home.
