Coming to Campus: What You Need to Do

Face Coverings

Face coverings will now only be required for:

  • All persons in classrooms, laboratories, and the Student Health Center.
  • At least 10 days if you have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated.
  • At least 10 days if you have tested positive for COVID-19.

While face coverings are no longer required in most settings, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, you are encouraged to use them, especially when in large groups. 

Face Covering Requirements

  • Face masks must cover both the nose and mouth.
  • The covering must fit snugly against the sides of the face so there are no gaps.
  • You shouldn't have any difficulty breathing while wearing the cloth face covering.
  • The cloth face covering can be tied or otherwise secured to prevent slipping.
  • The university expects the Toro community to behave responsibly with respect for others.

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

Employee Policy: All CSUDH employees are required to wear a well-fitting medical grade mask: surgical mask, KN95s or higher-level respirator such as an N95 filtering facepiece respirator in the required areas on campus. This is in accordance with the L.A. County Department of Public Health’s Jan. 5 upgraded requirements for employees [PDF].

These medical grade masks can be acquired from the locations listed below or employees can bring their own supply with them to campus. Cloth face masks will not be allowed while in the workplace.

KN95 masks are individually packaged and will be distributed without the need to sign for or receive a training document. Both KN95s and surgical masks will be given out in increments of five to ten masks at a time. If departments/colleges would like a supply at their location to distribute as needed, the department manager/administrator can request up to two boxes at the distribution locations below. Larger orders need to go through the campus warehouse.
Since N95 masks are considered respirators, these will not be distributed by the warehouse. N95s need to be picked up by the individual who intends to use them so they can sign for them and receive a training document.

These approved face coverings are now available to employees (including student workers) in the following locations from Monday through Friday during normal business hours. 

LocationHoursSurgical Mask*KN95*N95
Student Health Center9 a.m. - 4 p.m.XXX
University Police Department7 days/week**XXX
Toro Welcome Center8 a.m. - 5 p.m.XXX
Residential Hall Commons8 a.m. - 5 p.m.XXX

*Managers/Administrators should email to receive supplies greater than two boxes (excludes N95s).

**University Police Department dispatch is also available for distribution after regular business hours and weekends.

Symptom Self-Check

Everyone who comes to campus should complete a symptom self-screening check via mobile app or web browser. The program will inform you whether or not you are clear to come to campus. This should be done before each visit to campus.

On-Campus Testing

CSUDH is providing free drive-thru COVID-19 testing every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to asymptomatic students, faculty, and staff.

Unvaccinated students and students in University Housing and/or Athletics must be tested. Testing is also mandatory for employees with a religious or medical exemption from COVID-19 vaccination.
