Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

The total number of Humboldt County residents who tested positive for COVID-19 today stands at 479 after six additional cases were reported.

Wildfires continue to burn throughout the state, with many vacant places seeking shelter locally in local homes or hotels, campgrounds, RV parks and short-term rentals. Humboldt County Health Officer Drs. Teresa Frankovich said that gathering with those outside your home is inherently risky in times of COVID. “As we offer our support to those seeking relief from wildfires, we must all take COVID-19 precautions into consideration.”
