CSU has secured a central supply of personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies for use during the fall semester:
Protocols and procedures for distributing these supplies as needed are in place to ensure strategic use to preserve the University’s resources.
The university’s trained public health experts will actively work with health departments to track and trace illnesses and exposures. CSU Public Health staff receive training on and follow Centers for Disease Control requirements and best practices for contact tracing and addressing potential exposure. More information is available here.
Through the process of contact tracing, individuals will be alerted by public health officials when someone who is ill has had contact with others who live, learn, teach or work on a CSU campus. These officials will rapidly track the ill person’s activities and contact with others and provide education about self isolation, quarantining and preventative measures.
Individuals who test positive for COVID-19, have COVID-19 symptoms or are determined by public health experts as a close contact of an infected person will be asked to self-isolate (if they have a positive test) or quarantine (if they have symptoms or a potential exposure).
CSU has surveyed hundreds of spaces for physical distancing capacity and furniture needs to assure best practices in the configuration of those spaces to meet public health guidance.
The University will follow public health orders regarding building occupancy.
All students, faculty and instructors will be required to follow state and county public health orders, guidance, protocols and University policies while on University grounds and in all buildings, including classrooms, laboratories and living, research and service spaces. These include:
Extra precautions, procedures and measures will be necessary to create healthy spaces for in-person learning to take place on campus.
