June 29, 2021 - 7 New Cases Reported Today; Quarantine Order Updated for Vaccinated Individuals

Seven new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Humboldt County today, and one previously reported case was determined to be a false positive and removed. The total number of county residents who have tested positive now stands at 4,560.

One county resident in their 80s has been hospitalized with the virus since the most recent report yesterday.

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Ian Hoffman today issued a revised blanket Quarantine Order for those who have had close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19. Notably, the updated order states that fully vaccinated individuals and those who have tested positive within the last 90 days do not need to quarantine unless they develop symptoms. 

For those who are not fully vaccinated or haven’t tested positive for COVID-19 within the past three months, the order remains the same to quarantine and avoid contact with others for 10 to 14 days after exposure to an individual confirmed to be positive.

The blanket Isolation Order was also updated to reflect an increased availability of vaccine, but isolation instructions remain unchanged. The Order states that anyone who tests positive or who has symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, should isolate for at least 10 days after their symptoms started, all symptoms have resolved and 24 hours have passed without fever.
