Press release from the Humboldt Joint Information Center:
Two new cases of COVID-19 were reported today, resulting in 544 of the county’s population who tested positive for the virus.
Dr. Teresa Frankovic, a Humboldt County health official, said COVID-19 safety measures were becoming increasingly important with the start of the flu season. “Coronavirus and influenza virus infections will circulate in our community at the same time,” she said.
“Influenza vaccination is another public health tool that we need to protect the members of our community who are most susceptible to influenza or COVID complications and to protect the capacity of our health system to serve those in need,”; said Dr. Frankovic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months be vaccinated against the flu.
