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.
