Spring Break Advisory

Wednesday March 25, 2020 3:45 pm

Dear Titans, 

Spring Break is just around the corner, and under normal circumstances, next week would be a period of much needed (and well-deserved) time away from academics during which many of you would plan trips and enjoy traveling. However, in light of the evolving situation with regard to COVID-19, and in conjunction with the Governor’s “Stay at Home” Executive Order which was issued on March 19, 2020, I am asking that all Cal State Fullerton students reconsider Spring Break plans. In partnership with the CSU Chancellor’s office, I offer the following guidance intended to help you reassess how you might spend the week away from your studies:  

Regardless of whether you stay at home, the following preventative behaviors recommended by the CDC can help stop the spread of the coronavirus: 

If you begin to feel sick, have a fever of 100.4 or higher, and are experiencing shortness of breath/coughing, it is critical that you self-isolate immediately, call your health care provider to alert them of your symptoms, and await instructions. Should you need assistance from the Student Health Center, please call (657) 278-2800. 

The CDC recommends that anyone who is ill should stay at home unless they are leaving to seek medical care. Additionally, they should separate from others in the home, wear a face mask, cover coughs and sneezes with their elbow, clean hands and surfaces often, and avoid sharing personal items. It is important to monitor symptoms for potential worsening and it must be emphasized that anyone experiencing these symptoms should self-isolate and call their primary care provider.

We are in unprecedented times, but if we follow the guidance of the CDC and Governor Newsom, we will get through this together. I thank you in advance for your cooperation and for doing everything you can to keep yourself, your loved ones, and our Titan community safe and healthy.  

Take care and be well, 

Harry Le Grande
