Physical Distancing

How will the campus maintain physical distancing during repopulation?

Physical distancing or barrier requirements, regardless of vaccination status, are no longer mandated except for in very limited circumstances, such as during an outbreak.

How will Facilities Management ensure the cleaning and sanitizing of public and communal space?

Facilities Management will continue to focus disinfection efforts on high-touch surfaces and will clean and disinfect campus spaces in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Are students or guests allowed to utilize waiting rooms on campus?

Yes, physical distancing and occupancy reductions are no longer mandated by the California Department of Public Health or our local county health departments.  Waiting rooms and other campus facilities can be used as designed.

Are there still restrictions in the number individuals in the restroom and elevator?

No, physical distancing and occupancy reductions are no longer mandated by the California Department of Public Health or our local county health departments.  Elevators, restrooms and other campus facilities can be used as designed.

What has been done to improve building ventilation on campus?

HVAC considerations are coordinated by Facilities Planning & Management who specialize in this area. Generally speaking, the manner in which rooms are air balanced, the percentage of fresh outside air, and the types of filters being used can be helpful controls to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

CSUSB has upgraded building filtration to MERV-13 air filters in HVAC system on campus.  This has been identified as a best practice by the CSU Mechanical Review Board in controlling the spread of COVID-19.  In addition, CSUSB maximizes the percentage of outside air whenever possible and when the current Air Quality Index is less than 100 or when doing so does not create a hazard of excessive heat inside the building.
