Default Composting humanure in rainy climate

Is it prudent to cover humanure compost bins in the Pacific Northwest, with all our rain? I am thinking they would get very waterlogged, and imagining all sorts of icky runoff.

Yes, it should be covered to allow you to control the moisture levels.
It should be damp but not soggy
