            COVID-19 testing is available to Humboldt staff, faculty, and students at the Student Health & Counseling (SHC) building (near Library Circle). Bring your Humboldt ID to pick up a self-administered rapid test on a walk-in basis during open hours. The cost of testing will be billed to your insurance provider at no additional expense to you. 

            • Students and employees may come for testing during open hours: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 1-5 p.m.  No appointment is needed.

            • Wear a mask at all times (except when advised by the test collector to remove your mask) and stay 6 feet apart from others while waiting for your test.

            • Testing is highly encouraged, particularly following travel or high exposure events, regardless of vaccination/exemption status, to help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

            TimelyCare

            TimelyCare is one of several resources offered by Cal Poly Humboldt’s Student Health & Wellbeing Services (SHWS ). SHWS will remain the primary healthcare touchpoint for students and will coordinate care and make referrals to TimelyCare as appropriate. At the same time, the addition of TimelyCare means Humboldt students have access to on-demand after-hours care in all 50 states, a service that’s especially beneficial for those who live in remote areas with limited healthcare options.

            Using the TimelyCare app from a phone or desktop, students can choose virtual care options from licensed physicians and counselors with diverse backgrounds in all 50 states at no cost. Provider profiles and details of their specialties are available as well. Students can select a specific provider or the first available appointment. Services include:

            • Medical care (on-demand and appointment-based)
            • Mental health counseling (on-demand and appointment-based)
            • Psychiatric support (upon internal referral)
            • Health coaching

            Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS), offered through SWHS, is staffed by professional mental health providers, who include licensed psychologists, social workers, and marriage and family therapists, as well as therapists fulfilling professional training. We offer both in-person and telecounseling services with our trained therapists. Face masks are still required when receiving in-person counseling services.
