April 6, 2022 - 1 Death, No New Hospitalizations, 1 New Case During Past Seven-Day Period

Humboldt County Public Health reported today the death of a resident aged 70 or older from COVID-19. 

Eight previously confirmed positive cases were removed as they were determined to be from another jurisdiction or previously reported. One new probable case was added for the period between Tuesday, March 29, and Tuesday, April 5. The total number of confirmed cases in the county stands at 17,088. An additional 3,010 cases are reported as probable.

“Confirmed cases” represents the total confirmed positive PCR tests results or detection of SARS-CoV-2 by genomic sequencing, and “probable cases” are individuals who:

  • Have a positive antigen (Ag) test for COVID-19, or
  • Were diagnosed by a health care provider with COVID-19 disease, or
  • Have symptoms of COVID-19 disease after being in close contact with a person having a PCR-confirmed test result, or
  • Were a decedent whose death certificate lists COVID-19 as a cause or significant contributing factor of their death, in the absence of a positive PCR test result.

Local vaccination data has been updated. Highlights include:

  • Since the last weekly report on March 30, 104 additional residents completed their vaccine series.
  • A total of 88,863, or approximately 65% of the county’s total population was fully vaccinated as of Tuesday.

Individuals should stay home and away from others and get tested if they become sick or experience COVID-19 symptoms that may include fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue or muscle aches.
