Four new cases of COVID-19 and two new admissions have been reported in Humboldt County today. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus is 4,408 after a previously reported case was determined to be from another jurisdiction and removed from the count.
The state of California announced that it plans to adapt its masking guide to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on June 15th. The guide allows fully vaccinated people to be masked in most public settings with the exception of health care settings, indoor youth settings, homeless and emergency care, public transportation and crime facilities.
The CDC guidelines still require unvaccinated people to mask in indoor public spaces and businesses as well as in outdoor environments when they are around people who are unvaccinated and not part of their household. Unvaccinated people in the same household who gather outdoors with fully vaccinated people who are not part of their household do not have to mask.
The latest guide will replace all previous masking instructions when it takes effect Tuesday and can be reviewed in detail at cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/guidance-for-face-coverings. aspx.
