Vaccinations for Employees

After careful planning for the last several weeks with Humboldt County Public Health, Humboldt State University began administering COVID-19 vaccines to employees on campus this week, prioritizing staff and faculty who have been approved to work on campus and have a higher risk of exposure, such as Housing, Dining, Custodial Services, and Children’s Center. Student employees, including those working for auxiliaries and dining, will also be eligible to receive the vaccine.

HSU is expected to receive enough doses of the Pfizer vaccine next week to vaccinate employees approved to work on campus who signed up through the University’s employee vaccine interest form. Learn more about vaccinations here


Spring 2021 Face-to-Face Campus Business Services

Schedules for business services such as the Cashier’s Office, Facilities Management front office and work requests, keys, and mail have been updated for the Spring semester. See details here.    


Building Hours

Building hours for the Spring semester have been updated on the Campus Ready website, including open hours for student, staff, and faculty use of Redwood Bowl. Campus remains closed to the general public. See building hours here. 


On-campus Events for the Summer

Humboldt State University will cancel most in-person programs and events that are usually scheduled to take place on campus over the summer to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Events and programs include:

  • Summer conferences and workshops

  • Camps and athletics clinics

  • Recreation programs

Courses that provide academic credit are the exception. The Children’s Center will be open during the summer, as well. Read more about campus events.


Exclusion Pay for CSU Employees

All stateside California State University employees who work on campus (includes student employees, and retired annuitants) are now eligible for exclusion pay. 

Exclusion Pay is pay continuation for employees who are able and available to work but are being excluded from work due to exposure to COVID-19 at the work site and must quarantine, as prescribed by the California Department of Public Health. Learn more about Exclusion Pay here.


Free Testing for Campus Community

Free COVID-19 testing is now available for students, staff, and faculty  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.



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.
