Vaccine Requirement FAQs

MASKS AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING

  • The mask mandate will come to an end and campuses/system office will shift to a “mask-optional” protocol.  However, we fully support and expect all employees and students to respect those who choose to continue wearing masks. COVID Coordinators will continue to make masks available for employees and students who want them. Please note: no employee has the authority to ask or require the use of masks by others.
  • Visitors will no longer be required to wear masks in CSCU buildings.
  • Physical distancing restrictions have been removed in areas such as lounges, cafeterias, conference rooms, and other non-academic setting. However, in most instances, current classroom arrangements will remain as set for the remainder of the semester.

Testing

  • Weekly testing of employees and students and individual case contact tracing have ended.
  • Antigen tests are available from COVID Coordinators for those who are concerned about their potential exposure to the virus and would like access to a rapid test.
  • Employees and students should continue to self-monitor their health and stay home whenever they have COVID-like symptoms and follow current CDC guidance on quarantine and isolation.
  • Employees and students who test positive should continue to Self-Report by following the campus process for notification.  Human Resources, Health Services, or the COVID Coordinator, as appropriate, will determine the quarantine and isolation expectations, confirm when it is safe to return to campus or classes, and notify close contacts as needed.
