Press release from the Humboldt Joint Information Center:
A total of 2,171 residents of the county tested positive for COVID-19 after 33 new cases were reported today.
All Phase 1A healthcare professionals are encouraged to complete the Healthcare Workforce Survey linked below to receive an invitation to a COVID-19 vaccination clinic. This includes people working in health or long-term care facilities, home health care and community health workers, including promoters.
The form can be linked here: forms.gle/AFys9CLHFHYg5bcC6.
“If you are a healthcare professional and have not yet been vaccinated, register now,”; said Dr. Jan Hoffmann, Humboldt County Health Officer. “To move to the next priority group, we need to complete the vaccination of health workers in preparation for opening vaccination clinics for additional groups, including the elderly.”
The Humboldt County COVID-19 dashboard has been updated to include “Unknown” as an additional category for transmission type, in addition to “Contact with known case”, “Acquired travel”, “Community transmission” and “Investigation”.
A person who has tested positive for COVID-19 will be identified as unknown if the person is:
- Unable to connect
- Not answering calls after initial contact
- He does not want to cooperate with public health.
Cases that met these criteria were previously identified as being investigated. Dr Hoffman said this new category would offer more clarity on the results of investigations.
“If you are positive, Public Health is here to offer support for the safety of you and your loved ones. That means we need to talk to you, ”said Dr. Hoffman. “Please answer the call. Our contact researchers are here to help slow the spread of the virus and this requires all of us. ”
