Cal Poly Humboldt is now using a dashboard system to inform the campus of all positive cases, which employees will be expected to review to determine if they have been in a shared workspace with a positive case. Union representatives are also expected to use this dashboard as their means of determining if union members have had potential exposures.

Cal Poly Humboldt continues to implement prevention strategies to minimize the spread of COVID-19 to the extent practicable. There are many options for post-infection therapeutics, and vaccination continues to have the strongest impact on preventing serious illness if infection does occur. 

As we move further into the endemic stage of the disease, we anticipate seeing drops in case numbers as well as significant spikes. During those spikes we will continue to encourage individuals to protect themselves utilizing N95 rated masks.

Supplemental Paid Sick Leave

As we make our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety and well-being of our campus community remain top priority. Signed by the Governor on February 9, 2022, Senate Bill 114 provides for new supplemental paid sick leave (SPSL) up to 80 hours (prorated based on full time equivalency) and is available effective January 1, 2022 for employees unable to work due to COVID-19-related reasons.

Beginning Feb. 16, wearing masks outdoors on campus will be optional. Masks are still required indoors, except while eating or drinking in designated areas.

The moratorium on food and beverages at events and athletic games will be lifted on Feb. 16. On-campus dining areas have returned to normal dine-in services. 

Cal Poly Humboldt is paying close attention to the progress of COVID-19 on campus and in our community. As a result, our masking practices will continue to be reviewed regularly.
