Sept. 21, 2021 - 1 Death, 2 Hospitalizations, 72 New Cases Reported

A Humboldt County resident in their 50s has died from COVID-19. Department Operations Center staff share their sympathies with the family, friends and caregivers of those who have died.

Two hospitalizations have also been reported, including a person in their 20s and one in their 50s. Seventy-two new cases have been reported, bringing to 8,254 the total number of residents who have tested positive for the virus.

Public health officials continue to urge residents to get tested for COVID-19, particularly unvaccinated individuals, those experiencing symptoms, and those who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus.

Testing is available at most Public Health vaccine clinics, where residents will have the option of getting tested, vaccinated or both. As always, testing and vaccination services are provided free of charge. Combo clinics will be held this week in Garberville, Blue Lake, Arcata and Eureka. 

COVID-19 testing continues in Eureka from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week at the Wharfinger Building at 1 Marina Way. The test site is operated by OptumServe and located in the Bay Room on the lower floor of the building. The site is closed from 11 a.m. to noon and 4 to 5 p.m. for staff meal breaks. Walk-ins are welcome, but preregistration is recommended. Sign up at lhi.care/covidtesting.

Walk-ins are welcome at nearly all locations, and appointments can be made in advance at MyTurn.ca.gov. For instructions in English and Spanish on how to use My Turn, go to humboldtgov.org/VaccineInfo
