HSU Requiring Proof of COVID-19 Vaccine or Negative Test at Campus Events

Posted By on Mon, Nov 29, 2021 at 2:03 PM

Beginning Wednesday, Humboldt State University will require any visitor over the age of 12 to provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test result  for all indoor and outdoor campus events.

HSU students and employees are exempt from providing both forms of proof because under the university's requirements, they have been fully vaccinated or, if granted an exemption, are regularly tested for the COVID-19 virus.

Attendees have to either show an HSU staff, faculty or student ID or proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test within the last 72 hours to enter events.

Regardless of vaccination status or test status, all attendees 2 years old and older must wear a mask at all times while on campus except in designated dining areas while actively eating or drinking.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if my child is under the age of 12?

You can show any of the following:

  • Physical CDC Vaccination Card for COVID-19 or a photo/screenshot of your vaccination card
  • State of California Digital COVID-19 Vaccination Record
  • A printout from any state health department or physician's office with your vaccination information stated clearly
What do I show as proof of a negative test?
  • Any photo/screenshot that shows the date of the test result and the date the test was taken or a printout of an official email from a lab with the test results and testing date clearly printed.
What events does this new policy apply to?
  • This applies to all events on campus (both indoors and outdoors). HSU students and employees will not be required to show proof of vaccination because under University requirements, they have been either fully vaccinated or, if granted an exemption, are getting tested weekly.
