COVID-19 Response Information

As of June 15, 2021, the Governor terminated the executive orders that put into place the Stay Home Order and the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. He also phased out the vast majority of executive actions put in place since March 2020 as part of the pandemic response.

The new public health order effective June 15 supersedes all prior health orders. The order has limited restrictions, only related to masking and mega-events, as well as settings serving children and youth pending an expected update to the K-12 schools guidance by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As part of these changes, persons fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are no longer required to wear a mask in most settings. People who are unvaccinated are required to wear a mask indoors in public settings.

For information related to COVID-19, contact or visit Humboldt Health Alert.
