Seven brand-new cases of COVID-19 were tape-recorded since Friday. Three formerly reported cases tested at an outdoors laboratory were figured out to be incorrect positives and have actually been removed from the total case count. This means that Humboldt Countys overall number of citizens validated to have actually contracted the virus has actually increased by four and now stands at 286.
Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich stated that the outside laboratory discovered an issue with an entire specimen run and did repeat testing on the specimens that had actually been reported out as positive. This repeat testing yielded unfavorable results. 2 of the 3 individuals requested an extra round of screening at our regional Public Health Laboratory, which again verified the negative outcomes.
” We are devoted to reporting data properly and desire our community to have self-confidence that case counts are precise which if an error takes place anywhere in the procedure, it will be corrected,” Dr. Frankovich stated.
Todays alert level stands at three or level orange. Check out humboldtgov.org/dashboard to view the countys Alert Level Assessment tool.
