Two new cases of COVID-19 were reported today, with a total of 560 county residents who have tested positive for the virus.
Humboldt County saw its first case of COVID-19 eight months ago yesterday. Humboldt County Health Officer Drs. Teresa Frankovich said that staying during any crisis for a long time can have long-term effects on mental and physical health.
“We’ve all been living through this epidemic for quite some time, and it can take a toll,” the doctor said. “Maintaining relationships with our loved ones, exercising enough and taking time to rest are some healthy coping strategies that can be enjoyed by following COVID safety precautions.”
Humboldt County Health and Human Services Department of Behavior Health Director Emi Boetzler-Rodgers said, “It is very important to continue connecting with other people in a safe way. Taking care of yourself with healthy food, rest and exercise is also important. ”
