COVID Health/Safety Guidance

***Report positive covid test here.***

Covid prevention is still required by Cal Poly Humboldt. Everyone is still required to monitor symptoms, and if symptoms match what the CDC lists at the signs of Covid, test immediately. The disease that causes Covid has evolved over the years since we first began battling it in 2020, however, the prodominent signs remain: Fatigue, headache, sore throat, fever (not always), cough, and  congestion.

Anyone with symptoms of Covid should test. You will only be released for isolation with a positive test and will NOT be released from classes or work without a positive result. Cal Poly Humboldt continues to follow CDPH and CDC guidance for the safety of the campus population. Housing students who test postive can find more information here:

Follow these guidelines:

Summary: If you test positive, you must isolate for 5 days, you may re-test on day 6. If positive, you may keep re-testing until negative (if symptoms are improving or resolving, it is more likely you will test negative), or isolate 10 days and leave on day 11. If you re-test after day 5 and it is negative: email directly to if you have concerns or questions) and notify your early release. You should not return early if you still have a fever within 24 hours(without fever reducer), and no other significant symptoms are present i.e. repeated sneezing, coughing etc.. which could transmit virus (Mild headache and fatigue is ok, for example). 

If you leave isolation prior to day 11.... you must wear a tight fitting face covering until day 11. 

Report any positive result to: If you need a test, they are available in vending machines on campus. For access to tests to return to work, contact your supervisor. 

Cal Poly Humbolt personnel will use the confidential information provided to make the appropriate notifications via the Covid-19 Exposure Dashboard

The Covid-19 Exposure Dashboard is the primary mechanism for notification of exposures. It is expected all employees who test positive will self-report to their direct contacts, and when in doubt, direct them to this dashboard. “Close contact” is now defined by looking at the size of the workplace in which the exposure takes place. For indoor airspaces of 400,000 or fewer cubic feet, “close contact” is now defined as sharing the same indoor airspace with a COVID-19 case for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a24-hour period during the COVID-19 case’s infectious period. For indoor airspaces of greater than 400,000 cubic feet, “close contact” is defined as being within six feet of a COVID-19 case for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period during the COVID-19 case’s infectious period.
