Humboldt County Health Officer Teresa Frankovich.
In a letter addressed to the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, a collection of local healthcare organizations has sung the praises of the Humboldt County Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) and the Humboldt County Emergency Preparedness & Response Team.
Made up of more than a dozen local health-related entities, the North Coast Health Leadership Team specifically gives a shout out to Health Officer Teresa Frankovich
, Deputy Health Officer Josh Ennis, Sheriff William Honsal, and DHHS Public Health Director Michele Stephens, along with "all of the county employees who have been involved in COVID-19 Response."
"They have done an exceptional job at implementing new policies and infection prevention measures to help maintain the health and wellbeing of our community," the letter reads. "Our county continues to have a low number of residents with COVID-19 and we have not had our healthcare system overwhelmed. Through their ongoing dedication, commitment, and collaboration with healthcare agencies, we are confident that we as a county are better prepared to deal with whatever the future of COVID-19 may bring."
