This week, our ongoing COVID-19 reporting included daily case updates, a deep dive into the opening of local casinos and why some employees don't feel it's safe, the story of a local nurse who spent 21 straight days working 14-hour shifts in a makeshift hospital in New York City as cases surged, an explanation of Humboldt County Health Officer Teresa Frankovich's revised travel guidelines, a look at Humboldt State University's plans to reopen with some face-to-face instruction and a trip to the disc golf course. And in non COVID-19 news, we kept up with local Black Lives Matter demonstrations and took a look at the policies and procedures of local police departments, including whether they allow the controversial carotid artery control hold. It’s been a lot to keep up with.
