Please be advised …

COVID-19 is increasing at alarming rates in California and we all need to do our part to stop the surge. Effective November 26, stop non-essential activities between 10:00 pm to 5:00 am in Humboldt County. Please see for more information.

Humboldt County Public Health strongly discourages all non-essential travel and recommends that anyone who travels into or outside of the county self-quarantine for 14 days, if while traveling, a person engages in activities that increase risk of getting COVID-19.

These higher risk activities include:

• Spending time within 6 feet of people you do not live with, while not wearing masks — especially indoors.

• Traveling on planes, buses, trains, public transportation or other shared vehicles, if face masks were not worn at all times by both you and the other people in the vehicle, especially in situations without adequate air flow.

Our pledge to you: Humboldt County is taking every precaution possible to reduce the spread of the virus by implementing strict health and safety protocols throughout the region. Every business open has been through a county reopening process and display their certification certificates.

We ask you to be a respectful and considerate traveler and guest. Read the following information and tips.

Wear a Mask. Don’t make us ask.
