The CSUMB Infectious Disease Response Team will update this page as information becomes available.
CSUMB’s course delivery method will be through virtual instruction for the fall 2020 term, with few limited exceptions for in-person instructional and research activities that cannot be delivered in an alternate modality and are essential to the university’s core mission. For these activities, we will maintain rigorous standards of health and safety.
All employees presently working remotely or with alternate arrangements should continue these work practices through at least January 4, 2021. This matches our prior decision to provide Fall Session instruction in alternate-modality and to suspend all on-campus events until it is safe to hold them again.
Stay-at-home order continued; Face coverings required
The Stay at Home order continues in effect. The order issued under the authority of California law. Residents of Monterey County (including all students housed at CSUMB) are required to comply and it is a misdemeanor crime not to follow the order.
California Department of Public Health and the Monterey County Health Officer requires that all members of the public and workers must wear face coverings when not at home. Members of the Public must wear face coverings, cloth or home-made, when:
- Inside buildings or waiting in line
- Working in any business; some jobs may have other safety requirements
- Seeking healthcare or other health services from a provider
- Waiting for or riding public or other shared transportation
Our primary concern must continue to be for the health and safety of the students, faculty, and staff at CSUMB.
CSUMB response to COVID-19
All on-campus students are required to wear a face-covering when not alone inside their respective residence. Students must wear face-coverings on-campus, including when:
- In common areas in residential housing facilities
- Visiting on-campus service centers (ex. Student Services, Dean of Students office, Student Housing & Residential Life office)
Students are strongly encouraged to return home as soon as possible. Students must meet specific eligibility criteria for Fall 2020 Campus Housing eligibility.
All University and Corporation employees who work on campus are required to wear a face-covering when at work. The only exception is if an employee is alone in an office with the door closed and not in contact with any other employee, student, or member of the public. The University and Corporation will supply face coverings for all essential employees on campus. Managers have instructions for requesting facial covering supplies. Essential employees on campus who do not have face coverings should contact their manager, and CSUMB will supply them as needed.
All faculty and staff who have been requested to work remotely should continue to work remotely through at least Jan. 4, 2021. The campus will continue to operate on a limited basis, and most university buildings are closed. All emergency personnel will remain in place to maintain a safe campus community.
