Press release from the Humboldt Joint Information Center:
Ten new cases of COVID-19 were reported today. The total number of Humboldt County cases is 255.
Today marks the first time the one-day report has reached double digits. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Frankovic said it was not surprising to reach this milestone. “We are no longer going back to periods with zero cases, as before. This shows that there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure that people understand the growing risk of exposure when they are away from home or when they get together with other people, ”she said. “Public health is all of us right now. Everyone in our community plays a role in limiting the transmission of this virus. “
Dr. Frankovic encouraged all residents to reintroduce safety-enhancing prevention measures. These include wearing facial coverings, refraining from gathering with non-household members, eliminating minor trips, washing your hands regularly, and maintaining a physical distance of at least six feet at all times.
