Humboldt County Public Health reported the death today of a resident aged 80 or older. Two new hospitalizations were reported, a resident in their 60s and one in their 70s. An additional 247 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 were reported as well as 72 new probable cases for the period between Tuesday, June 7, and Tuesday, June 14. The total number of confirmed cases in the county stands at 19,022. An additional 3,679 cases are reported as probable.* 

Local vaccination data has been updated on the COVID-19 Data Dashboard. Highlights include:

  • Since the last weekly report on June 8, an additional 71 residents completed their vaccine series.
  • A total of 90,452 individuals, or approximately 67% of the county’s total population, have been fully vaccinated as of Tuesday.

OptumServe continues to offer rapid antigen testing and PCR testing services at the Wharfinger site. PCR tests are available only on a walk-in basis and must be specifically requested from the attendee. Walk-in attendees should receive only rapid antigen testing unless the attendee specifically states they require a PCR test. Appointments for antigen testing can be made at lhi.care/covidtesting or by calling 888-634-1123.

Test to Treat service is also available at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka. At Test to Treat locations, people are tested for COVID-19 and if a person tests positive, is 12 or older and treatments are deemed appropriate for them, Paxlovid antiviral medication will be administered at no charge. A registered nurse is onsite with a Telehealth link to a medical doctor in order to dispense medication, should the patient choose.

The service runs daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 1 Marina Way in Eureka. The site is closed from 11 a.m. to noon and 5 to 6 p.m. Attendees should have a list of their medications with them.

Vaccines remain readily available throughout Humboldt County and, as always, Humboldt’s vaccination and testing services are available free of charge. Walk-ins are welcome at all Public Health clinics and some pharmacy vaccination sites. Appointments can also be made at MyTurn.ca.gov.
