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, Focused 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.

Humboldt County Moves to Purple Tier

Humboldt County Public Health (HCPH) has announced that the county has moved into the purple pandemic tier. Community risk level is considered widespread at this level and new restrictions will be in place. Read about new County restrictions here. 

The most substantial effect of the purple tier is that Humboldt County is now under the state’s Limited Stay at Home Order. This order requires residents to refrain from gathering with non-household members and stop any non-essential activities between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Members of the same household may leave their home during this time as long as they do not interact with other households, and activities related to “the operation, maintenance, or usage of critical infrastructure” are exempt, according to the state’s order.  

Travel and quarantine restrictions remain in place. See more details here. 

What to do When you Fail the Wellness Self-check 

Each day before coming to campus, everyone, including students, is required to do a wellness self-check -- another measure to prevent the spread of illness. If you have any of the listed symptoms that are uncommon for you (for example, many people have allergies and may have some of those symptoms regularly), please do not come to campus and follow the appropriate guidelines.
