COVID-19 Statistics | November 8, 2021 | Lost Coast Outpost

Humboldt County Public Health today reported the death of a resident in the 70s due to COVID-19. Staff in the ward’s operations center express their condolences to the families, friends and relatives of those who died and all those who have lost a loved one due to the virus.

Seventy-one new cases were also reported since Friday, bringing the total number of residents tested positive for the virus to 9,523. Three admissions were also reported, including one in his 30s, one in his 40s and another in his 70s.

The new Mass Quarantine Order issued by Humboldt County Public Health Officer Ian Hoffman, which went into effect today, allows unvaccinated people to shorten their required 14-day quarantine after a known exposure.

Non-vaccinated individuals who are close to a COVID-19 case and who do not have or develop symptoms may terminate their quarantine after seven days of their exposure if they receive a negative result from a test taken on day five or later. .

Public health officials continue to stress that vaccination is one of the best tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic. All eligible residents who are unvaccinated are encouraged to receive one of the three approved vaccines. The Pfizer vaccine is now approved for ages 5 to 11 and is recommended for the nearly 10,000 local children in this age group. For more information or to schedule an appointment, parents should contact their child’s health care provider or local pharmacy.

While some people who are fully vaccinated will be infected with the virus, health officials broadly agree that vaccination is the best way to prevent serious outcomes such as hospitalization and death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that individuals with moderate to severe immune compromise receive an extra dose to generate an adequate immune response. Officials are urging those who are unsure whether they meet the criteria to talk to their primary care nurse about their medical condition.

The California Department of Public Health recommends that all eligible residents who are at increased risk of hospitalization and severe COVID-19 disease should receive a Pfizer or Moderna booster at least six months after their second dose. CDPH also recommends that adults who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine receive a booster if two months have passed since their first dose.

Humboldt County Public Health vaccination and testing services are offered free of charge. Residents who receive their first or second dose at a public health office in Eureka, Willow Creek or Garberville can opt for a $ 25 gift card to Renner Petroleum or Coming Attractions Theaters on a first-come, first-served basis.
