Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:
Three new cases of COVID-19 were reported today. The total number of county residents who have contracted the virus is 231.
Of these three cases, two people contracted the virus through contact with a known case, and the means of transmission of the third case are being investigated. A total of 14 cases are under investigation.
Humboldt County Health Officer Drs. Teresa Frankovich noted that since the onset of the epidemic, the county has experienced waves of new cases, followed by a relative quiet period in detected virus transmission.
“The epidemiological curve on the data dashboard shows that the current wave has been trending for more than a month,” Dr. Frankovich said. “This increase in local disease activity is a reminder that safety precautions are more important than ever. We have the ability to dramatically change the landscape of virus transmission in our community, helping to keep our businesses open and facilitate on-site school instruction for our children. “
Today’s alert is at level three. Go to humboldtgov.org/dashboard to see the county’s alert level assessment tool.
