Based on recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Centers of Medicare (CMS), Humboldt County Memorial Hospital is able to make some welcomed changes to our COVID-19 protocols.


Effective immediately, masking and screening is no longer required for our patients, visitors, and staff.

We do ask that patients and visitors notify us at any time with the following information.
