Responding to COVID-19
At Humboldt General Hospital, we are prepared to safely screen, diagnose
and care for patients with respiratory illness, including COVID-19.
We have implemented enhanced infection prevention strategies, such as visitor
limitations and screening procedures, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19
in Humboldt County.
We are committed to patient confidentiality and will not be providing details
about patients in our care. Any confirmed cases of COVID-19 will be reported to designated state and
federal agencies per governmental guidelines.
As always, prevention is key, and we stress the importance of wearing a
mask, maintaining at least six feet of social distance and proper hand hygiene.
