COVID-19 Reopening Certification

Local businesses may now prepare to reopen on a gradual basis consistent with state and local orders. While reopening will occur in phases and stages, viewing the informational video and taking the quiz will prepare proprietors as their sector begins to reopen. Humboldt residents can find updated lists of certified businesses and spectator-free events on the GoHumCo website.

If you need assistance, please reach out the Humboldt Reopening Team at Our team is committed to helping our community navigate the reopening process as safely and rapidly as possible.

NOTE: This reopening certification process is for regular business operations only. Humboldt County is no longer certifying events. Please see the information below.

“Spectator-Free Events” are now designated “COVID Safe Events”
