Coronavirus Information

This page was updated on April 19, 2021

The CSUMB Infectious Disease Response Team will update this page as information becomes available.

The regional stay at home order ended on Jan. 25; however, we continue under the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

Monterey County remains in the orange-moderate status. This means that some indoor business operations are open with modifications.

Spring 2021 semester

  • CSUMB’s course delivery method will be through virtual instruction for the spring 2021 term.
  • All employees presently working remotely or with alternate arrangements should continue these work practices through at least August 1, 2021.
  • Shipping and receiving, and mail services will operate under new hours and operations. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, each department can pick up their mail and packages Monday thru Friday, 8 - 10 am at Building 35 (Shipping and Receiving). We have suspended deliveries throughout the campus and to Ryan Ranch. We will continue limited operations, such as only receiving mail and packages from commercial couriers; and no deliveries throughout the campus and to Ryan Ranch. Please call 582-3702 before going to Building 35.

Fall 2021 semester

  • CSU announces return to in-person instruction for Fall 2021
  • The CSU system is presently reviewing the process of shifting to primarily in-person instruction for Fall 2021. More information about the safety protocols, procedures, and impacts are forthcoming. CSUMB will work from the Chancellor's office guidance to implement the campus strategy. The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff remain our highest priority. We will continue to post updates to this webpage as they are available and communicate directly to members of the campus community when actionable items arise.

Face coverings required

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 visiting on-campus service centers (ex. Student Services, Dean of Students office, Student Housing & Residential Life office).

Employees | Course Instructors, Faculty, and Staff

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.

Most university employees presently performing duties in remote modality should continue this practice and expect a repopulation date no earlier than Aug. 1, 2021. As the planning process moves forward, we will remain flexible. A limited number of departments may be authorized to return sooner to prepare for students' arrival on a case-by-case basis. 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.
