The following is a press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Humboldt County Public Health has reported 56 more cases of COVID-19 since Friday, bringing the total number of residents who have tested positive for the virus to 9,071. No hospitalizations or deaths were reported.

One hundred and eighty doses of the vaccine were administered over the weekend at the Public Health mobile vaccination clinics held in Eureka and Miranda. Health officials continue to urge all eligible residents to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Residents, especially those who are not vaccinated, should get tested if they have symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus. Testing is available through OptumServe seven days a week at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka and on mobile sites across the county most days of the week. For more information on testing, visit humboldtgov.org/covidtestregistration.

On Wednesday October 20, the OptumServe test site at Fortuna River Lodge will be closed. Instead, Public Health will be offering PCR testing at this site on Friday, October 22, from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. Pre-registration is required. To register, visit the color test registration page.

Residents who receive their first or second dose at an immunization clinic located in a public health unit in Eureka, Willow Creek or Garberville can choose a $ 25 Renner Petroleum or Coming Attractions Theaters gift card. Incentives are offered on a first come, first served basis at these locations only.

County vaccination and screening services are available free of charge. Appointments for Public Health vaccination clinics are not mandatory but are recommended due to increased demand for additional doses and reminders. Register in advance at MyTurn.ca.gov.
