COVID-19 Housing Community Updates

Good Evening Residents,

Last night, out of an abundance of caution, and in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 after learning of their possible exposure to the virus at an out-of-state conference, we instructed some members of our community to remain in their rooms until we had an opportunity to review this situation with the Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA). After consulting with the OCHCA this morning, all but three of these students were released from their restriction and approved to resume their regular routine. Each of the three students are in self-isolation off campus as a precautionary measure, in accordance with guidance provided by the OCHCA. To be clear, there are no presumptive or confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Cal State Fullerton, nor within the housing community. All of the students involved remain well and have not presented with symptoms.

Keeping the community safe is our most important priority. As I mentioned in my last email, you have seen increased measures taken at the Gastronome.

As President Virjee stated in his email, this situation continue to be fluid and ever-changing. The university alongside local health agencies are monitoring the impact of the CSUF community closely and are committed to sharing information with you as it is available. For more information, visit Cal State Fullerton’s COVID-19 website at

We greatly appreciate your support and cooperation during this time.

Thank you,
