Campus Ready Update

To keep the campus community informed, Humboldt State University will regularly send this e-newsletter with recent updates about HSU’s Fall semester, Spring semester, plus highlights of important current or new guidelines. 

This information reflects the ongoing work and decision making of the Emergency Operations Center, Fall Instructional Transition Team, Advanced Planning Team, and the President’s Administrative Team— the groups tasked with creating guidelines and procedures for campus operations during the pandemic. Find comprehensive information about pandemic planning, preparedness, and operations at the HSU Campus Ready Website.

Social Responsibility

HSU looks very different this semester to keep everyone safe and to support the success of our students. Check out these videos for a reminder as we continue face-to-face classes. 

Accessibility Support Services

The Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) is using a hybrid model for educational services. Work will continue remotely with a minimal number of staff and students performing essential, face-to-face functions within the SDRC office including: fax retrievals, confidential disability documentation processing, equipment check out and returns, LiveScribe smart pen trainings, and on-campus transportation service.

Coronavirus Paid Administrative Leave for Students

Under new CSU provisions, most state-side employees, including student employees, are eligible to receive a one-time allotment of up to 256 hours of COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave (CPAL) that can be used for COVID-19-related absences, including necessary isolation. Learn more at the HR website and on this chart (PDF). 

Free Flu Shots for Students

Student Health & Wellbeing Services strongly encourages everyone to receive a flu shot. Getting the influenza vaccine will reduce the number of coughs and fevers on campus. It will reduce the burden on local health care resources including HSU Student Health & Wellbeing Services and on local hospitals. For individuals, getting the flu vaccine may prevent a fever and cough that will lead to quarantine and isolation while COVID-19 testing is pending.  

Student Health & Wellbeing Services has partnered with Safeway Pharmacy to offer the convenience of on-campus free flu vaccinations for fully matriculated HSU students and to staff and faculty for $34 check or credit card on-site. If you have insurance you can talk with your primary care provider or pharmacy about getting your flu shot.

Voting Information

Recognizing the threat COVID-19 continues to pose to public health, Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Orders and the California Legislature passed subsequent legislation directing that all active voters will receive a mail-in ballot for the Presidential General Election on November 3. For this reason, it is important for voters to check their voter registration status and re-register to update any changes to their residential address and/or mailing address.
