Humboldt County Joint Information Center press release:
In Humboldt County, the number of COVID-19 cases stands at 228, after seven additional cases were reported today.
According to Teresa Frankovich, an official with the Humboldt County Health Service, travel to and from the county and gatherings of friends and family continue to be important engines of new infections. “Many places where locals travel or where visitors come have a much higher rate of COVID-19 infection, making it more likely to interact with COVID sufferers,”; she said.
California state health official and Dr. Frankovich asked residents to stay close to home and restrict travel as much as possible. “We are very lucky to have one of the most beautiful places in the world here in our yard,” Frankovic said. “I would urge everyone to take advantage of this and postpone or cancel any non-essential trips outside the area. Please ask your friends and family to wait a safer time to visit you here in Humboldte. This is the best way to protect your family and your community. “
