As of Friday’s most recent report, 46 new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Humboldt County. A previously reported case was removed after it was determined to be a duplicate. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 4,775.

A new hospitalization of a resident in his 40s has also been reported since Friday.

Since the last weekly update on July 12, the province has reported 99 new cases of COVID-19, three new hospitalizations and two deaths. Of the residents who were hospitalized, one was in his 40s, one in his 60s and one in his 70s. One of the deceased residents was in his 60s and the other in his 70s. To date, the province has reported a total of 219 hospitalizations and 53 deaths.

As the spread of the highly contagious Delta strain causes a rise in the number of cases in the state, a growing number of California counties are urging residents to wear masks indoors. Los Angeles County, the most populous county in the state, has reinstated the requirement for indoor masks, while more than a dozen other counties strongly recommend them.

Statewide, unvaccinated residents over the age of two are required to wear face coverings in indoor public areas. To learn more about the role of masks in preventing the spread of COVID-19, visit cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/ Effective-masks.html.

Public health officials reiterate that eligible community members are vaccinated. Vaccine is available at public health clinics and most local pharmacies. Walk-ins are welcome at all Public Health clinics, or sign up in advance at MyTurn.ca.gov. See below the clinic’s schedule for the next seven days.
