Face Coverings Requirements for Campus Activity

Face coverings are not required in most indoor settings for students, employees and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.

Masks are still required for all in health care settings, including the Health Center and COVID-19 testing site. As of April 20, the California Department of Public Health no longer requires masks on public transit. Individuals can choose to wear a mask indoors, and N-95 masks are available to all campus community members.

The CSU announced a revision to its systemwide COVID-19 Vaccination Policy to require a vaccine booster shot for all eligible students and employees.

Cal Poly changed its definition of “fully vaccinated” to include a booster for eligible students effective Jan. 20. Students will be considered fully vaccinated if they have completed their primary vaccines series and received a booster. Learn more on the COVID-19 Vaccine webpage.

Employees should now upload proof of their vaccination and booster. The deadline for employees to update their booster information varies by bargaining unit, and the latest information can be found here.
