Humboldt County Moves to Red Tier

November 16, 2020 - 2:21pm

Humboldt County Public Health has announced that the county has moved into the red pandemic tier. Community risk level is considered substantial at this level and new restrictions will be in place. Learn more about the county’s response and closures here. 

This will affect campus operations in various ways, possibly including work shifts, travel, and shelter-in-place restrictions. Details of many of those changes will be finalized throughout the day and tomorrow, and the campus will share specific information when available.

As cases increase in Humboldt County, it is crucial to adhere to the HSU Social Responsibility Commitment to protect yourself and your community. Read the commitment here. The recent rise of COVID-19 cases in Humboldt County corresponds with an increase in state and national cases, and increasingly is coming from community transmission, meaning it's unknown where people were infected. 

“We simply need to stop traveling and stop gathering, especially indoors. It isn’t safe, and it is impacting our schools and our business communities,” said Humboldt County Health Officer Teresa Frankovich. “The upcoming holidays need to be single household celebrations if we want to get through this pandemic with fewer hospitalizations and fewer lives lost.”
