HSU Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19
Humboldt State University has learned that a staff member has recently had a positive test for COVID-19. The employee was not tested on campus and the case is not related to HSU’s recent move-in day.
HSU is working closely with Humboldt County Public Health in responding to information about this test result.
No one in the campus community had contact with the employee, as they followed protocol and isolated at home when the symptoms began. The employee has not been back on campus since that time, and is expected to recover soon and return to work. Staff at Public Health praised the employee’s actions as well as campus protocol for helping to avoid additional contacts.
Our campus community knows this is a challenging situation for the affected employee, family, and friends. We applaud the employee’s response to the situation and offer best wishes for a quick and full recovery.
