Vaccinations for Employees

After careful planning with Humboldt County Public Health, Humboldt State University has been administering COVID-19 vaccines to employees. Student employees, including those working for auxiliaries and Dining, have also been eligible to receive the vaccine.

If you are interested in receiving a vaccine and have not filled out the HSU employee vaccine interest form, please do so as soon as possible here. Those who have completed the form can look for an email invitation to sign up for a vaccine appointment. Please note this is a separate form and process than what Humboldt County and the State of California are offering. Learn more about vaccines. 


Spending Priorities and Investments from Federal Emergency Funding

Humboldt State University has announced allocations of the $12 million in funding from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). Since the initial campus call for feedback, HSU received an additional $1 million in federal Minority-Serving Institution funding, increasing the total second round funding allocations from $11 million to $12 million.  Learn more about fund allocations. 


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. 

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.

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.
