COVID-19 Statistics | Nov. 19, 2021 – Lost Coast Outpost

Humboldt County Public Health reported today 39 new cases of COVID-19, bringing to 9,836 the total number of residents who have tested positive for the virus. No deaths or hospitalizations were reported.

Public Health officials are continuing to urge all eligible Californians aged 5 and older to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and for partially vaccinated individuals to complete their vaccination series. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an unvaccinated person is 11 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than a vaccinated person.

California Department of Public Health (CDPH) simplified its booster guidance and is encouraging all vaccinated residents to receive a booster as soon as they’re eligible. 

All adults aged 18 and older can make appointments on to receive a booster dose of their choice — as long as it’s been at least six months since their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two months since their Johnson & Johnson shot.

Since the last weekly data update on Nov. 12, the county has recorded 183 new cases of COVID-19. No deaths were reported during that period. All three of the hospitalizations reported over the last week were unvaccinated residents. Age ranges of reported hospitalizations are as follows:

  • 1 person in their 30s
  • 1 person in their 60s
  • 1 person in their 70s

The seven-day average case rate in Humboldt County is currently 15.8, meaning that for every 100,000 residents, 15.8 tested positive daily over the last seven days. Case rates vary considerably by vaccination status, as illustrated by the graph below, which depicts average weekly case rates since Dec. 2020 in unvaccinated and fully vaccinated residents.

The current seven-day average case rate for fully vaccinated individuals is 9 per 100,000 residents while the case rate for unvaccinated individuals is 16 per 100,000 residents. View a more detailed depiction of the case rate graph.

Humboldt County’s vaccination and testing services are available free of charge. Although walk-ins are allowed at most regular Public Health clinics and many pharmacy vaccination sites, a sharp increase in demand for boosters has caused delays at some locations. As a result, appointments are required for pediatric clinics and for clinics at Public Health’s main office. Appointments are strongly recommended for all other clinics and are the best way to ensure a shot is available during your visit. Appointments can be made at
