California’s coronavirus rate is approaching an all-time low. But in one area on the North Coast, numbers are moving in the wrong direction.
Humboldt County, Eureka’s largest city, 230 miles north of San Francisco, had 137 new cases last week. That is the most since the beginning of February. Over the weekend, the county’s health department reported 33 additional cases, bringing the total number of residents who have tested positive for the virus since the outbreak began to 3,885.
