for Campus Community
The latest information regarding COVID-19 is available on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website
CSUF community members should regularly review this website and be familiar with the dynamics of the disease, including its risks, symptoms, and current guidance on prevention and what to do if you are sick.
- Physical distancing or barrier requirements regardless of vaccination status are no longer mandated but for very limited circumstances such as during an outbreak.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Surgical, paper or cloth masks/face coverings: All members of the University community must comply with the California Department of Public Health’s “Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings” dated June 15, 2021. That guidance requires that unvaccinated individuals wear face coverings indoors.
- Unvaccinated individuals do not have to wear face coverings indoors when (a) alone in a room or vehicle, (b) eating and drinking, (c) an accommodation is required and/or (d) job duties make a face covering infeasible or create a hazard. Face coverings are recommended for unvaccinated individuals outdoors where six feet of physical distancing cannot be maintained.
- Fully vaccinated individuals may still wear a mask if they wish to do so, but it is not required.
Personal Health Assessment
- Prior to arriving on any University property or participating in any University-related activity, please complete a personal health assessment for possible COVID-19 related symptoms.
- The CDC Coronavirus Self-Checker is a useful tool you can use on any device.
- You can also download and print the CDC Symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fact Sheet for your personal reference.
- Do not come to campus if you are feeling unwell or if you are unvaccinated and have a known exposure to COVID-19.
- Exception: COVID-19 Testing is available at Student Wellness for individuals with symptoms or who have a known exposure, regardless of vaccination status. See Student Wellness for testing hours and scheduling.
- Those experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms may not come to any University property or participate in any University-related activity. In addition, campus community members who develop COVID-19 related symptoms while on University property or participating in any University-related activity must leave campus or remove themselves from the University-related activity.

- During the COVID-19 pandemic event, CSUF’s Infectious Disease Working Group (IDWG) will provide employees with communications regarding scientific information, safety precautions, operational impacts and related company policies.
- All members of the University community while on University property and/or when participating in University-related activities must adhere to COVID-19 health and safety signage.
