Student Athletes Returning to Play

Humboldt State University student-athletes are cautiously returning to training, practice, and exhibition games this spring.

Under strict health and safety guidelines from the NCAA, Humboldt County Public Health, and the University, this is the first opportunity since the COVID-19 pandemic began for student athletes to return to a bit of normalcy. The careful, deliberate approach to returning can have implications for the future of campus functions like field trips, in-person courses, events, and more. Learn more about Athletics this semester.


Vaccination Surveys

Vaccinations for HSU employees are expected to begin in the next few weeks. 

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. Timing depends on the number of doses available to the county and can change quickly. More information about scheduling an appointment will be provided as soon as those details are available. 

Student employees, including those working for auxiliaries and dining, will also be eligible to receive the vaccine. 

All Humboldt County residents—including HSU staff, faculty, and students—who want to receive the vaccine are encouraged to fill out a County vaccine survey as well. Submit your 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.


Free Testing for Campus Community

Free COVID-19 testing for students, staff, and faculty began this week. Testing takes place at the Great Hall, Tuesdays–Thursdays, 9:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. and you must register in advance to schedule an appointment. 

The Great Hall is located on the second floor above the College Creek Marketplace, across from the Student Business Services building. 

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.



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.

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. 

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.
