Detailed information on mask protocols and other health and safety guidance is available through our Return of the Pack website.

Traveling to Palm Desert 

All guests, vaccinated or unvaccinated, are required to wear masks during guided tours, and complete the CSUSB COVID-19 Daily Health Screen upon their arrival to campus.

In general, visitors to campus buildings will only be permitted inside if absolutely essential and by appointment only. Meetings should be conducted online or via phone whenever possible.

Tour guests needing mobility and/or auditory accommodations as outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) should email at least five business days in advance of their scheduled tour.

Healthy and Safety Measures 

Visitors are expected to follow all public health guidance from the City and County of Riverside and abide by CSUSB’s COVID-19 Prevention Plan and signage. CSUSB guidelines may be stricter to ensure a safe community for all. For more information, visit the university’s COVID-19 Return of the Pack webpage.

All visitors must complete CSUSB’s COVID-19 Daily Health Screen as a ‘guest’ on the day of their visit to campus and should not visit campus if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. 

Anyone with affirmative answers on CSUSB’s COVID-19 Daily Health Screen or with a temperature of 100° or above must immediately self-isolate in their personal or on-campus residence and should seek medical attention.

All visitors must properly wear their facemasks or coverings during their scheduled tour program.

Arriving at PDC

Due to limited tour guide staffing, student-led tours will have a 15-minute grace period for late arrivals. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your scheduled student-led tour, we will instead ask you to reschedule your tour. Please plan your arrival to campus accordingly.
