31 new cases and a ‘substantial’ red shift

Dec. 29, 2020 - 31 New Cases Reported Today; State Moves County to Red Tier

A total of 1,678 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19, after 31 additional cases were reported today.

The California Department of Public Health today reassigned Humboldt County to the “Red” or Substantial tier under the state’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” a surprise decision based almost exclusively on the county’s Health Equity Metric, which is intended to ensure that no population group within a county is disproportionally impacted by COVID-19.

Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Ian Hoffman is in consultation with state and local officials about the next steps for implementing relaxed COVID-19 safety measures. The Joint Information Center will make additional information available later today.
