COVID-19 and Humboldt
(VIDEO) County Health Officer Talks Delayed COVID-19 Test Result, Social Gatherings
In today’s media Q-and-A, Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich discusses what’s causing delayed COVID-19 test results at local facilities and the importance of limiting social gatherings.
Following the holiday weekend, Humboldt saw an uptick of five new coronavirus cases today, which the County said was a direct result of people attending social gatherings.
“As much as I hate to say it, we really, really need people to limit those gatherings outside their household unit,” Frankovich said during her Q-and-A response today. “The real issue is not trying to make our cases zero. We need to control our number of cases so people have access to the healthcare they need when they need it.”
