COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 testing is available to Humboldt staff, faculty, and students. 

Students may come to the Student Health & Counseling (SHC) building (near Library Circle). You can pick up a self-administered rapid test on a walk-in basis during open hours Monday through Friday.  Be sure to bring a form of ID that confirms your affiliation with campus and to wear a mask.

If you are an on-campus resident, you may also pick up a rapid test from the main Housing desk.

Cal Poly Humboldt Employees can pick up a self-administered test from the Parking Kiosk on campus (near the Student Business Services building).

If you would prefer a PCR test, or would like to test outside of campus hours, you may register for COVID-19 testing through Humboldt County Deptartment of Health and Human Services.  Many local drug stores also provide testing.

General Information

Testing is highly encouraged, particularly following travel or high exposure events, regardless of vaccination/exemption status, to help stop the spread of COVID-19.  

While onsite at the SHC, please remember to wear a mask at all times.
