Humboldt County’s COVID-19 case count stands at 105 as no new cases were confirmed today.
Two previous cases that had been under investigation were determined to be acquired through community transmission. Humboldt County has seen three new cases attributed to community transmission this month alone.
“These are individuals without a history of travel or exposure to a known case,” Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said. “This just points to the fact that virus is circulating in our community and will increase as we ease out of shelter in place and become more interactive again. Prevention measures will become increasingly important.”
