COVID-19 Statistics | January 6, 2022 | Lost Coast Outpost

Humboldt County Public Health today reported 107 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total population tested positive for the virus to 11,733. Two new admissions, two residents in their 60s, were also reported.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced yesterday that it has extended the nationwide mandate for indoor masks by an additional month for all public environments, regardless of vaccine status. The mask requirement will continue until February 15, 2022 and is intended as an additional layer of protection against the Omicron variant spreading rapidly through the state.

With effect from Wednesday, the quarantine and isolation guidelines for asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic individuals with improved symptoms have been reduced from 10 to five days under specific conditions. The move brings the county in line with the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the CDPH Isolation and Quarantine Guide.

The Omicron variant was detected locally among two samples taken in December and has been known to have been circulating in Humboldt County for several weeks. Health authorities continue to monitor to determine the extent to which the most recent increase in cases is Omicron.

Public health officials continue to stress that residents, especially those who are unvaccinated, continue to protect themselves and their families from all COVID-19 variants by following mask requirements in public environments, taking social distance and being vaccinated or boosted, when they are entitled to it.

As always, Humboldt County’s vaccination and testing services are available free of charge. Although walk-in is allowed at most regular public health clinics and many pharmacy vaccination sites, an increase in the demand for boosters has caused delays in some places. As a result, there is a need for appointments to pediatric clinics and to clinics at Public Health’s headquarters. Appointments are highly recommended for all other clinics and are the best way to ensure that a shot is available during your visit. Appointments can be made at MyTurn.ca.gov.

Vaccines, including boosters, are available at local pharmacies. To check the availability of a specific vaccine, visit the vaccines.gov page, or send an SMS with your zip code to 438829 to find a nearby pharmacy that offers vaccines.
