NCJ Preview: Servers Under Pressure, Risking Bars and Barbecues, and Voting by Mail

Posted By on Thu, Jul 2, 2020 at 1:18 PM

This week's conversation with Access Humboldt starts with the flak Humboldt restaurant staff are taking from patrons who don't want to wear masks. On top of the stresses of increased protocols during the pandemic and exposure to scores of local and visiting customers, it's a lot. And while opening bars is a concern, Humboldt's public health officer warns casual socializing between households — our friends and families — is a major threat to safety.

NCJ Preview: Fish off the Boats and Oysters Online

Posted By on Fri, Jun 26, 2020 at 2:12 PM

This week, the conversation is heavy on seafood. As COVID-19 closed restaurants, Humboldt fishermen started selling fish to the public at the docks, rather than sending it out of the area. Now the lines are long and the boat and business captains are looking at keeping it going. And how did virtual Oyster Fest go? Maybe not as festive as the in-person event but it had a connection to the people, ecology and history of Humboldt Bay oysters that that we should probably hold onto. Hit subscribe for weekly updates on local news and culture around the county via the NCJ YouTube Channel and catch us on Access Humboldt.
