Guidance for Students
Eating and drinking are not permitted in classrooms unless there is an approved accommodation. Individuals should eat or drink in food service areas or outdoors. Face coverings are required to be properly worn indoors at all times.
Faculty are encouraged to review the COVID-19 Safety Procedures Enforcement page for detailed information on the student conduct process and recommended best practices for handling non-compliance in the classroom.
The updated daily self-screening form for students, which integrates the vaccine verification database and the COVID-19 testing database, is required for all students every time they come to campus. When students complete the daily self-screening form, a green or red screen will appear to indicate whether or not they are cleared to come to campus.
A GREEN screen means CLEARED
A RED screen means NOT CLEARED
Faculty can request that students show their green screen prior to entering the classroom. For more information visit the Daily Self-Screening webpage.
Faculty are not required to accommodate student absences for students who cannot come to class due to a failed screen. We do ask faculty to work with students who are required to miss class due to COVID-related quarantine or isolation. Deans stand ready to assist you in addressing situations as they arise.

This proposed Return to Work plan has not been implemented and is subject to meet and confer as appropriate. This plan may change if the State releases Guidelines for Higher Education as anticipated.
Temporary Telecommute Agreement
Given the evolving nature of the COVID-19 virus, Stanislaus State encourages practical social distancing as recommended by the California Department of Public Health. As such, departments should consider ways of implementing social distancing as a method to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus. One such option for social distancing is telecommuting on a temporary basis where management has determined that such temporary telecommuting is appropriate and viable.
This Temporary Telecommuting Agreement (Agreement) should be used in all instances in which management has determined that an employee may temporarily telecommute as a means of social distancing. In addition, if an employee already has an existing telecommuting agreement in place, this Temporary Telecommuting Agreement should be used in addition so as not to modify an existing agreement because this Temporary Telecommuting Agreement provides the flexibility needed to adjust to any changing circumstances evolving as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Tier Based Allowable Activities/Uses Matrix.xlsx
The matrix is based on guidance for Institutions of Higher Education from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of California, and the Stanislaus County Public Health Department. The information will be continually re-evaluated as the restrictions and requirements are modified. While Stanislaus County remains in any COVID Tier, approval and review of the activities in the matrix are required by the Cabinet and Stan State Safety and Risk Management Office. Capacity, as outlined in the matrix, refers to the room/facility capacity as outlined by the Fire Marshal. Actual capacity, based on health and safety guidelines within each tier, will often be less than the maximum occupancy. The matrix outlines the maximum allowance by tier and category, approval will be based on the priority of health and safety for all students, faculty, and staff. This matrix will be updated on a regular basis as tier guidelines are revised by the agencies mentioned above.
