No New COVID-19 Cases Reported Among HSU Students
No Humboldt State students tested positive today as testing of all new on-campus residence continues.

A total of three student residents have tested positive. They had not shown symptoms or felt ill prior to moving into the residence halls.

The affected students have been moved to rooms on campus that are set aside for isolation. The University is providing ongoing support including frequent health and wellness checks with the students, as well as delivery of meals and other necessities.

Based on its policies and protocols, the University is protecting the privacy rights of the students while also working to share information necessary to protect the health of the campus and the broader community. HSU is working closely with Humboldt County Public Health, which will determine whether there are members of the campus community who need to be advised of their contact with affected people.

Comprehensive testing is continuing for all students living on campus this year. Campus residents will be tested multiple times during the course of a 14-day quarantine period. This enhanced level of testing is intended to identify those who may be asymptomatic and isolate them quickly, and was implemented late last week with the help of additional resources that the state provided from the state and county.

In addition to the required testing for students living on campus, all other HSU students may opt to be tested at the Student Health Center and all students showing symptoms will be tested. Student-athletes are also being tested periodically per state requirements.

This advisory provides all the information the University will share about the cases.
