Free Testing for Campus Community

Starting Feb 23, free COVID-19 testing will be available to students, staff, and faculty at the Great Hall, Tuesdays–Thursdays, 9:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. You must register to schedule an appointment. 

Testing is not mandatory for HSU personnel, though it’s highly encouraged to help stop the spread of COVID-19. There is no limit to the number of tests an employee or student can receive.Learn more and register for a test here.

To cancel an appointment, reply to the confirmation text message to cancel your appointment. To change an appointment, follow the same procedure and sign up for a new appointment.

When your test results are ready, you’ll receive a text notification to log into the Curogram app to view the results.

 

Vaccination Surveys

Humboldt County Public Health has begun vaccinating educators, including all K-12 educators and childcare workers. Higher education staff and faculty vaccinations are expected to follow. Student employees, including those working for auxiliaries and dining, will also be eligible to receive the vaccine. Timing depends on the number of doses available to the county and can change quickly. 

Humboldt State University continues to work closely with County Public Health on vaccination plans. Based on state and county vaccine priorities, the University will first vaccinate employees who are physically working on campus during the spring semester.

There are two vaccine surveys, one being conducted by Humboldt State and another by Humboldt County.

Staff and faculty who want to be vaccinated should complete the HSU survey. This survey will help the University to ensure there are enough doses, especially for employees in high-risk categories (those who have a medical condition, etc.).

More information about scheduling an appointment will be provided as soon as those details are available. 

All Humboldt County residents—including HSU staff, faculty, and students—who want to receive the vaccine can submit their contact information through an online form to be notified when doses are available for their tier. Fill out the COVID-19 Vaccine Interest form and read more about the COVID-19 vaccine from the CDC.

 

Spring Break and Face-to-Face Courses

Spring Break runs Feb. 22-26, and limited face-to-face courses begin March 8. Remember that you are expected to quarantine for 14 days before returning to campus if you’ve traveled outside Humboldt County. It is critically important to the health and safety of the campus community to continue practicing social distancing, wearing face coverings, and following other guidelines and rules. Revisit the Social Responsibility Commitment for more information.

What to do if 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. See symptoms and learn more here. 

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.

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, and 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.
