June 10, 2021 - 4 New Cases Reported Today; State Releases Details of New Masking Guidance

707-441-5000 ; ; Monday-Friday 8am to 5pm

Four new cases of COVID-19 and two new hospitalizations have been reported in Humboldt County today. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus is 4,408 after a previously reported case was determined to be from another jurisdiction and removed from the count.

The State of California announced that it plans to align its masking guidance with that of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on June 15. The guidance allows for fully vaccinated people to go unmasked in most public settings, with the exception of health care settings, indoor youth settings, homeless and emergency shelters, public transit and correctional facilities.  

The CDC guidance still requires unvaccinated individuals to mask in indoor public settings and businesses as well as in outdoor settings when around people who are unvaccinated and not part of their household. Unvaccinated people of the same household who gather outdoors with fully vaccinated people who are not part of their household will not need to mask. 

Approximately 13% of the county’s population is under 12 years of age and not yet eligible for vaccination, and about 51% of eligible county residents over the age of 12 are unvaccinated. 

The latest guidance will take the place of all previous masking guidance when it takes effect Tuesday and may be reviewed in detail at
