Cal State San Bernardino and its Palm Desert Campus will be closed on Monday, Sept. 7, in observance of the Labor Day holiday.

Both campuses will reopen remotely for business and virtual classes will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 8. University Police will remain on duty on all days when the campus is closed.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the university has temporarily suspended all non-essential on-campus operations, and classes and university operations have been conducted in a virtual environment.

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of the United States, according to the U.S. Labor Department.
