What We Are Doing to Keep You Safe

Cleaning and Sanitizing

CSUDH's cleaning measures help to ensure the health and well-being of our campus community:

  • High-touch areas like door handles and restroom fixtures are wiped down frequently during the day.
  • All restrooms are cleaned and sanitized daily, and kept stocked with supplies.
  • Classrooms and labs are cleaned daily, and foggers and misters are used in high-use areas.
  • All building HVAC air systems have been upgraded to hospital grade, MERV 13 filtration.
  • Building flushing and increased air filtration is helping to maintain air quality.

Distributing Supplies

CSUDH is providing Personal Protective Equipment (masks and hand sanitizer) for on-campus students, employees, and visitors.

If you forgot your mask, you can request one by calling Facilities Services Work Control at (310) 243-3804.

If you are an unvaccinated employee, you can pick up a free N95 mask at the:

Physical Plant front desk (Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.)
Student Health Center front desk (Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.)
University Police Department, Dispatch (after 3 p.m., and on weekends)

You will also receive instructions for how to take the respirator on and off [PDF], and sign a form stating you received an N95.
