Free Testing for Campus Community, Vaccination Survey

February 12, 2021 - 12:40pm

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. There is no limit to the number of tests an employee or student can receive.

Registration and Scheduling Information

  • Student Athletes and Students Who Live on Campus: Athletes and residents will be emailed a separate link to a website to schedule an appointment.  

** SYMPTOMATIC STUDENTS should contact the Student Health Center at (707) 826-3146 as soon as possible for testing. 

An HSU ID will be required and HealthQuest will bill insurance directly. No co-pay is needed. Testing is also free for those without insurance. 

Please remember to wear a mask at all times (except when advised by the test collector to remove your mask) and to stay 6 feet apart from others while waiting for your test. 


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. 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.

Staff and faculty who want to be vaccinated should complete a 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 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.

Remember: Stay Healthy and Safe

It’s critically important to remain vigilant about protecting yourself and others from spreading illness. Please continue to follow basic health and safety precautions (i.e., wear a face covering, practice social distancing, etc.), don’t forget to do a daily wellness self-check before coming to campus, and follow these guidelines if you fail your wellness check.
