Face Coverings on Campus

  • Unvaccinated individuals do not have to wear face coverings indoors when (a) alone in a room or vehicle, (b) eating and drinking, (c) an accommodation is required and/or (d) job duties make a face covering infeasible or create a hazard. 
  • Face coverings are recommended for unvaccinated individuals outdoors where six feet of physical distancing cannot be maintained. 
  • Fully vaccinated individuals may still wear a mask if they wish to do so, but it is not required.
  • Fully vaccinated individuals are explicitly allowed to wear a face covering without fear of retaliation. For concerns regarding retaliation, contact the University DHR Administrator
  • Visit the latest information on the Titans Return: Face Coverings on Campus webpageOpens in new window

Conference Rooms

  • Conference rooms may be used and the President's Directive 22 must be adhered to which includes face coverings for unvaccinated individuals. Zoom and Microsoft Teams can still be utilized for meetings.


  • The use of breakrooms is permitted. Employees must follow the President's Directive 22. Good hygiene practices such as keeping frequently touched common surfaces clean should be highly encouraged.

Physical Distancing

  • As of July 1, per the President’s Directive 22 and in line with the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards, physical distancing requirements have been eliminated except where CSUF determines there is a hazard and in the event of outbreaks.

Hand Hygiene

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.



Individual Work Area (Within Shared Workspaces or Single Offices)

  • Individuals are responsible for cleaning daily frequently touched surfaces in their individual work areas. Examples include desks, phones, and keyboards. Departments should follow their Division’s PPE Request process to request PPE supplies in bulk. Sanitizing wipes are available to employees and can be collected at a college or department’s distribution area.
