Humboldt NOTIFICATION - Two Humboldt student teachers from the Children’s Center on campus have tested positive for COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution, the decision was made to close the center per Humboldt guidelines until Tuesday, September 7. In the meantime, the center will be sanitized and Humboldt will work with Humboldt County Public Health to conduct contact tracing.


The student teachers, who had been proactively getting tested, were asymptomatic and are fully vaccinated. The center implemented all health and safety protocols, which include wearing face masks, distancing whenever possible, and conducting health checks.

Humboldt has been in contact with families and center employees regarding the cancellation, and has encouraged them to monitor children and themselves for symptoms over the next 14 days and to get tested, if necessary.
