Two New Cases Reported Today; Alert Level Raised to Three
July 24, 2020
Humboldt County’s confirmed COVID-19 case count now stands at 205, after two new cases were reported today.
The Humboldt County Alert Level increased to level three due to recent increases in case counts per 100,000 residents as measured over a 14-day period. Although the increase does not place us on the state’s County Monitoring List, which would trigger additional business closures and modifications, Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich expressed concern over this recent trend and said it needs to change.
“It becomes increasingly important right now that people are actually helping by using facial coverings, social distancing, hand sanitizing and staying close to home,” Dr. Frankovich said. “In order to bring our case rate down, protect our community and allow us to remain off the county monitoring list, we really need to cooperate as a community and drop those numbers.”
