Summer/Fall 2022

What are the COVID-19 requirements for those coming to campus?

Students, Faculty and Staff are subject to the Interim COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.  There are currently no additional COVID-19 protocols in place to access campus facilities.  Those experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should not report to campus and should follow normal absence reporting procedures.  COVID protocols are subject to change depending on appropriate guidance from the California Department of Public Health, local County public health departments, or COVID prevalence in the region.

Are face-coverings required to be worn on campus?

Wearing of face coverings when indoors or outdoors on campus is optional regardless of your vaccination status.  However, campus community members who have a direct exposure to COVID-19 will be required to wear a face covering per CDPH Quarantine and Isolation Guidelines.

Where can I obtain a face covering on campus?

N-95 Face coverings are available free of charge on the San Bernardino campus at the Parking Information booths, Library information desk, Student Union Information desk, University Police Station and at the Student Health Center. At the Palm Desert Campus N-95 face coverings can be obtained from the Information desk at the Mary Stuart Rogers Gateway building and in the Student Health Center.

Employees wishing to request an N-95 face covering can submit a request through Environmental Health and Safety using the Employee N-95 request form.
