Release of Physical Distancing in Campus Spaces

The campus is implementing a phased approach to releasing the physical distancing requirements in campus spaces:

  • For the next several weeks and in two-week blocks the campus will keep a watch on COVID positive cases on campus and regionally. 
  • If cases continue to decline, we will continue to “release” spaces.
  • In April, IDRT will reassess the positive on-campus cases and will identify additional “release” areas.
  • As long as positive case counts decline or hold, we can continue this process through the spring semester and summer.
  • If cases rise and are attributable to a “release” of an area, we will evaluate and consider if it is necessary to revert back to physical distancing.

Upon consultation with our County Public Health Departments, the Infectious Disease and Response Team (IDRT) has made a recommendation that has been approved by the Cabinet to initiate a phased approach to releasing the physical distancing requirements in campus spaces as follows...

Your collective efforts to get vaccinated, adhere to weekly testing, wear face coverings inside all campus buildings, complete daily self-screenings and maintain 3 feet of physical distance have allowed us to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus on campus.

Starting today, when you register for spring 2022 courses, you will find more in-person classes and fewer online options than were offered this fall (see Class Schedule). An estimated 41% of classes were held with a face-to-face component this fall, while the rest were held fully online. This spring, about 72% of courses offered will be in-person or in a hybrid format. This means students may not be able to enroll in a fully online course schedule in the spring. After Nov. 8, course modalities are not expected to change as published in the Class Schedule.

In the coming weeks, the committee will seek to address the following expressed concerns:

  • Status of policy regarding requiring vaccination to return to campus
  • Status of completed Risk Assessments, Parts 1 and 2
  • Planning for the future, including potential long-term impacts of the pandemic on recruitment, admissions, enrollment and funding

If you have questions related to fall planning, please submit them to co-chairs Provost Rich Ogle and/or VP Christene James.

Please be advised:

  1. Face coverings are still required unless you are alone in an enclosed office with the door closed.
  2. All faculty, staff, students and guests must continue to complete the daily self-screening before coming to campus.
  3. Social distancing is strongly encouraged.

Fall Planning Meeting Transitioning to Report-Out Forum
The fall planning meeting is transitioning to a report-out forum with small working groups being formed organically and on an as-needed basis. Workgroups and stakeholders will provide weekly updates highlighting ongoing preparations for fall, as well as questions and concerns that require immediate attention.

Guidance regarding work-related travel
Systemwide travel restrictions announced last year at the onset of the pandemic, have been lifted as of June 1. However, for our continued safety and for cost-savings reasons, faculty and staff are encouraged to continue to utilize virtual meetings as much as possible. Therefore, any travel by individuals will require pre-approval by your Vice President, who will rely on current CSU travel guidance to determine whether travel is appropriate and necessary to conduct business. Approvals should be managed through the Concur Travel tool utilizing the “requests” tab, a process which requires manager approval prior to arranging the trip.

This guidance regarding travel will remain in effect until Dec. 31, 2021.

We will continue to keep you up to date on all aspects of the campus repopulation over the coming months.

Warriors Take Care
We are anxiously preparing campus for your return. As we look forward to returning to in-person learning, it's more important now than ever to get vaccinated and do your part to protect your roommates, friends, classmates, and campus staff.

Visit MyTurn.ca.gov or call 1-833-422-4255 to locate a vaccination site near you and make your appointment today.

  • 31.44% of students responded to the student survey. View the results.
  • Results of the Reopening Survey for Staff, which received a 61% response rate, are available for review.
  • CalOHSA guidelines have not been finalized and we are awaiting another emergency meeting for clarification.
  • There continues to be significant discussion around masking requirements. Our expectation is that masking will be required through the fall semester, however, guidelines are contingent on more information from public agencies.
  • The CSU is still negotiating the vaccine policy with our collective bargaining units.

Fall Planning meeting will continue on Monday from 9 to 10 a.m.

Staff Repopulation meeting will continue Thursday from 1 to 2 p.m.

Fridays at Fall meeting will continue at 3 p.m. on Fridays.

These meetings may be canceled if there are no updates to discuss.

Return to Campus Surveys Now Live
Staff return-to-campus survey was distributed by email Tuesday, May 18. As of Friday, 44 percent of the surveys had been returned. If you have not done so already, please submit responses today. The staff survey closes at midnight, Tuesday May 25.

Students also are currently being surveyed. The faculty survey, previously submitted, is with SEC for review.

Class Schedule Update
With 38 new in-person courses as of Friday, there are 967 face-to-face courses scheduled, which represents 39.4 percent of classes.

Fall 2021 Schedule

  • ASI recommended waiting to finalize the Fall Schedule a bit longer (60 days prior to the start of the fall semester); this would be June 24 and after Gov. Gavin Newsom’s June 15 announcement so things might be clearer at that point.
  • After discussion, the recommendation was made not to change the teaching modality after June 1st as that imposes unnecessary instability for students and faculty. In-person course sections will be added in response to needs discovered during NSO and TSO. President Junn supports this recommendation. See the full discussion notes.

Safety Guidelines
The planned Cal/OSHA Standards Board has postponed its voting on the COVID Emergency Temporary Standard until June 3 in the wake of the Centers for Disease Control announcement that fully vaccinated people may go without face coverings in some settings. With this update, the draft with new language will be open for public comment until May 28 to be followed by the vote at the June 3 emergency meeting. Regardless of the eventually approved protocols, face coverings are expected to be required at Stan State in the fall, and social distancing guidelines will be in place.

No Fridays for Fall This Week
Due to Commencement ceremonies, the weekly Fridays for Fall Zoom meeting scheduled for 3 p.m. on Friday, May 28, has been canceled.

Safety Guidelines Still in Place
The Centers for Disease Control recently updated its Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated Individuals. Safety and Risk Management Interim Director Kellie Marshall reminds everyone that despite these new guidelines suggesting those fully vaccinated are largely free to be in public without masks, state and local guidelines remain in effect. Currently, masks and social distancing norms at Stan State, in Stanislaus County and in California remain unchanged. We are waiting for guidance from both the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Cal OSHA on how these new recommendations will impact our campus.

Staff Survey This Week
Staff should look for a survey to measure your thoughts on returning to campus this week. A link will be sent via email, but results will not link back to the email recipient, making the survey anonymous.

Fall 2021 Class Schedule Update

  • Department chairs and program directors were invited to a special session of the Fall 2021 Planning Workgroup.
  • Currently, there are 929 in-person sections offered for fall out of a total 2,441 course sections (37%).
  • Six campuses, including Stanislaus State, are being encouraged by the Chancellor’s Office to increase the number of in-person sections to at least 51% of the total courses offered.
  • President Junn asked faculty to review their course offerings and determine whether they are able to shift some of their online course sections to in-person for the fall.

More Fall 2021 Updates
Join the Fridays for Fall weekly meetings at 3 p.m. for updates on the University’s fall 2021 plan. For up-to-date information, visit the Fall 2021 Planning webpage.

Much of the current planning and expectations were covered in President Ellen Junn’s May 6 message to the campus. Here are more fall planning highlights:

Travel Restrictions: Though restrictions are being lifted as of June 1, CDC travel guidelines may change. Travel will require a signature from your vice president, and you cannot travel to CSU-banned states.

Risk Assessments: Safety and Risk Management has begun to receive completed assessments from supervisors for their staff. Once completed and approved, employees may volunteer, with their supervisor’s approval, to return to campus.

Furniture and Tech Item Move Back: There is a new online work order system being formulated for employees to put in a work order for assistance in moving items back into their offices, as needed, through Capital Planning and Facilities Management.

Class Schedule

The Fall 2021 Planning Committee reported on Monday, April 26, that the class schedule, which will be made public on Wednesday, May 5, showed:

  • 2,453 sections total
  • 853 sections in-person, hybrid or televised (previously 691, increase of 35%)
  • 1,599 sections fully online (previously 1,664)
  • 604 sections asynchronous, no days/times listed (previously 612)
  • 995 sections synchronous online with days/times listed (previously 1,052)

There were no unplaced classes. Anyone who wanted to offer a F2F course was able to do so. None of the non-traditional/non-instructional spaces needed to be used.

Repopulation Plans Remain a Work in Progress

The Fall 2021 Planning Committee noted many repopulation decisions hinged on the class schedule, which it now has, making planning clearer. The committee reiterated that fall will likely be a transition to a more “normal” spring.

Repopulating requires risk assessments, which will remain relevant and critical, even after the color-tiered system ceases on June 15. Safety and Risk Management must adhere to CalOSHA COVID-19 requirements and is not guided by tiers. Managers should be working with their staff to understand the needs of each unit.

OIT is continuing work on telecommuting technology bundles. They are still awaiting equipment but will be working with managers on what is needed for their units.

New Travel Guidance

Travel will no longer be restricted after June 1. All travel must be approved by a vice president and must be in compliance with CDC guidelines and restrictions.

Summer Hours

Human Resources will be notifying the campus community that those returning to work on campus for the summer will be working traditional summer hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Risk Management Assessments and Protection Plans at a Glance

Regulations and protocols for repopulating the campus are available on the Risk Assessments & Protection Plans webpage created by Safety and Risk Management, with links to additional COVID-19 information.

Open Forums

Join the Fridays for Fall weekly meetings at 3 p.m. for updates on the University’s fall 2021 plan. For up-to-date information, visit the Fall 2021 webpage.

Face-to-Face/Hybrid Courses

As of last Friday, 809 sections of face-to-face/hybrid courses have been approved, representing about 35 percent of total sections offered for the fall. Work continues on fall planning with the full registration catalog scheduled to be available May 5.

On-campus events still being discussed

Some events will resume in the fall in accordance with California Department of Public Health guidelines. These events will primarily be restricted to those connected to Stan State’s core academic mission. Additional guidance on events will be communicated to faculty, students and staff as it becomes known. Discussions also continue regarding the potential return of summer camps.

Face-to-Face Courses

The first rounds of face-to-face courses have been placed in the fall 2021 schedule, and additional space is available. Faculty wanting to add face-to-face/hybrid courses for fall must do so by Tuesday, April 20 as the schedule must be posted May 5.

Campus Repopulation

Managers are completing risk assessments to determine how to safely repopulate their departments. Departments are encouraged to submit assessments before the June 30 deadline.

Open Forums

Open forums to discuss fall planning with President Ellen Junn and University leadership are scheduled this week:
Staff: 2 p.m. Thursday, April 22
Students: 1 p.m. Friday, April 23
Faculty: 2 p.m. Friday, April 23
