Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:
A total of 3,219 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 after nine new cases were reported today.
Humboldt County Public Health continues to expand its COVID-19 vaccination clinics as vaccine supplies allow. To prepare for the anticipated increase in vaccine allocation and help plan future mass vaccination efforts, Public Health vaccinated 1,000 county residents in about eight hours at one clinic last week. This week, public health and local healthcare partners are expected to deliver 2,300 doses in five large-scale clinics in addition to doses administered directly by certified local vaccinators to their patients.
The California Department of Public Health reported today that Humboldt County has collected a week of metrics to move to a more restrictive level under the “State Plan for a Safer Economy”, with a positive rate of 3.0% and an average state rate of 8.2 per 100,000 residents. This means that if local virus data does not improve, the county could be reset to the “purple” level or broadly as early as next week. Health officials are urging residents to limit the spread of COVID-19 by recommitting to prevention measures, adding that these measures support businesses remaining open and protect community health.
