From DHHS: No new positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed again today, marking the sixth consecutive day without a new case in Humboldt County.

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said the county could be seeing the effects of social distancing and the Shelter-in-Place Order. “Our last positive result was a week ago,” she said. “It’s important to remember that the virus has not disappeared, we have simply made it much more difficult to spread.”

Frankovich added that the Shelter-in-Place Order continues to be an important part of Humboldt County’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “I know we are all eager to move forward and ease some of the restrictions in place,” she said. “Any move to ease shelter-in-place regulations can only be done with solid and informed planning.”
