Press release from Humboldt County Joint Press Center:
After 31 more cases were reported today, a total of 1,678 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19.
The California Department of Public Health today reassigned Humboldt County to the “red” or “substantial” level in the state’s “safe economic blueprint”, an unexpected decision almost entirely based on the county’s health equity indicators. The aim is to ensure that groups in counties without population are most affected by COVID-19.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Ian Hoffman is negotiating with state and local officials to implement the next steps to relax COVID-19 safety measures. The Joint Information Center will provide more information later today.
