Press release from Humboldt County Joint Press Center:
Since the latest report last Friday, 9 new COVID-19 cases have been reported in Humboldt County. Previous antigen-positive cases have been reclassified as PCR-positive cases. This measure is taken to avoid double counting of positive cases. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus is currently 3,501.
Public Health: Travel Guide for Fully Vaccinated CDPH
The Humboldt County Department of Public Health will follow the guidance of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), which updated its travel advisory report on Friday to target people who have been fully vaccinated, while continuing to advise people who are not fully vaccinated to postpone travel.
According to CDPH data, fully vaccinated travelers:
- Less likely to acquire and spread COVID-19, and safe travel in the U.S. and California
- The travel guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should be followed, and testing or isolation is not required unless there are symptoms related to COVID-19 disease before or after travel in the United States.
CDPH abandoned its previous recommendation of no more than 120 miles from home. Instead, it provides unnecessary new advice for unvaccinated Californians to leave the state, including testing before and after travel and isolation after returning home.
