Press release from the Humboldt Joint Information Center:
Three new cases of COVID-19 were registered today. The total number of county residents who confirmed that they had contracted the virus was 231.
Of these three cases, two people became infected with the virus through contact with a known case, and the means of transmission for the third case are under investigation. A total of 14 cases remain under investigation.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr Teresa Frankovic noted that since the beginning of the pandemic, the county has experienced waves of new cases, followed by relatively quiet periods of open transmission of the virus.
“The epidemiological curve on the dashboard shows that the current wave has been going on for more than a month,”; Dr Frankovic said. “This increase in the activity of local diseases reminds us that safety measures are more important than ever. We have the ability to drastically change the landscape of virus transmission in our community by helping to keep our businesses open and facilitating on-site school instruction for our children. “
