Stanislaus State COVID-19 Safety Measures
Stanislaus State takes the health and safety of our campus community very seriously. With the spread of the coronavirus or “COVID-19,” a respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the University must remain vigilant in mitigating the outbreak. In order to be safe, maintain operations, and continue the mission of the University, Safety & Risk Management with the assistance of Capital Planning & Facilities Management has implemented, to the extent feasible and appropriate, safety measures and protocols across campus.
These actions are based on regulatory compliance from such agencies as OSHA, CalOSHA, Department of Industrial Relations, Center for Disease Control, California Department of Public Health, and Stanislaus and San Joaquin County Health agencies. They are based on information available at this time and are subject to change as further information is provided by these regulatory and guiding agencies. Stanislaus State may also amend these actions as the operational needs of the University develop and transform. Partnerships with local public health departments are instrumental to ensure an effective response to reduce the spread of illness. Stanislaus State has partnered with San Joaquin County Public Health Services and Stanislaus County Health Services Agency. These partnerships have led to increased testing, contact tracing, and vaccination efforts on our campuses in the cities of Stockton and Turlock. To effectively communicate and manage the efforts of both the University, the county and the state, communication with these agencies has been vital and occurs daily.
Stanislaus State is asking everyone in our campus community to help with the prevention efforts while the University. In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19 on campus, everyone must play their part. The University has instituted various housekeeping, social distancing, and other best practices on campus.
