COVID 19 Resources and Information

Recursos en Español

 

The health and safety of our children, families, and child care providers is our top priority. While things are changing rapidly every day, we want to provide a resource page of updated Information from reliable sources, such as our local Public Health Department, the California Department of Education, the Governor's Office, the Center for Disease Control, the CA Department of Developmental Services, our local County Office of Education, and other organizations. We are also including family friendly resources, as well as children’s activities. We will be updating this information daily and we are happy to add any suggestions for links or resources.

  • Humboldt County Public Health Alerts
  • Facial Coverings and Children

    The Order of the Humboldt Health Officer went into effect on Friday, 4/24/20, requiring everyone to wear facial coverings in public. We have received many questions about how this applies to child care. We have reached out to Public Health to help answer these questions, but it is important to note that the order does NOT apply to children under age 2 or to anyone who has trouble breathing or who cannot remove their facial covering without help. If the children in your care meet any of these categories, then they should not wear masks. You can also contact Humboldt County Joint Information Center directly for more specific questions by emailing covidinfo@co.humboldt.ca.us or calling 707-441-5000. Spanish speakers are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

     

    If you are wondering about how to create your own face mask or one for a child over age 2, here are some links to a simple version of the hospital approved Olson Face Mask that is easy to make and comfortable to wear, with separate patterns for ages 2-5 (p.1) and ages 6-10 (p. 2)
