Vaccination for Child Care Providers Update!

If you are a Family Child Care Home, this includes your assistants and any adults in your home who are on your license, even if they don't provide care. If you are license exempt (family member, neighbor, or friend who did a Trustline background check) this also includes you! Please contact the Joint Information Center with any questions at 707-441-5000 or to

"As many of you have heard, Humboldt County is currently vaccinating healthcare workers (Phase 1A) and recently began vaccinating those ages 75+ (very early Phase 1B).

In the weeks and months ahead, the county will move further into Phase 1B, Tier 1. One of the groups we’ll be prioritizing in the future includes the childcare sector. To help us prepare to schedule vaccination clinics for childcare providers, childcare organization/businesses are invited to complete the Humboldt Community Workforce Survey using the link below. This survey should be filled out by one person per agency, whoever is best positioned to collect and share information for all employees (usually the director).

When we are ready to schedule clinics for childcare providers, the county will use the contact information you provide in the survey to send registration links by email. To make sure you receive your invitation and are able to register, please provide an accurate email address in the survey. Please also be planning to check your email frequently once your sector is opened for vaccination.

At this time, the county is unable to provide an accurate estimate of when the vaccine will be available to childcare workers, as much will depend on our vaccine allocation from the State, which is subject to change. To stay informed on the latest news related to COVID-19 and vaccine distribution, please subscribe to news alerts on our website:

If you have any questions about the survey or COVID-19 vaccine distribution, please contact 707-441-5000 or email

Thank you for participating in this process."

"Wear A Mask!

The “Wear a Mask” campaign was developed by a workgroup of the COVID Economic Resilience Consortium (CERC).

The campaign is designed to encourage the consistent use of masks to better protect the health of the community and to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. We know that being ‘Pro-Mask” is being “Pro-Business.” Stopping the spread of the virus is the best way to get to the reopening of our local businesses and organizations. It’s up to each of us to join the fight!

We have developed materials to share.  Please fee free to use in your social media, print and distribute, or however you want to help the message of “wear a mask!”

And don’t forget! Use our hashtags, #KeepHumboldtHealthy #WearAMask"
