In response to Governor Newsom’s directive, County Health Department, Center for Disease Control and California State University recommendations, the below event protocols are in place until further notice.
Event protocols are continually evolving, with potential changes occurring as new information becomes available. It is recommended that you return to this website often to check for updates.
Cancellation or postponement for all events with attendance or participation of 10 or more, regardless of the event location (on or off campus).
Events that include activities requiring close proximity to another individual are canceled.
Out of an abundance of caution and care, all club events and intramural sporting events are canceled, regardless of the event location (on or off campus) or the expected group size, until further notice. This policy applies to everything but intercollegiate athletics, as the university is still working with the CSU and NCAA to determine how intercollegiate athletics might proceed in the fall.
When making a decision about events with attendance or participation of under 10 individuals, please carefully consider the following:
- Can the goals and outcomes of an event be accomplished through alternative modalities of communication that do not require in-person engagement?
- Will intended audience members be traveling via air to attend the event, in particular on flights that will be of longer duration?
- Are guests/participants traveling from areas outside of San Luis Obispo County?
- Will intended audience members or meeting participants be member of target populations considered to be at increased risk of susceptibility to COVID-19 infection?
- Does the event sustain core institution mission activities?
- Will the meeting space accommodate appropriate social distancing of 6 feet for attendees?
If you plan to continue with an event, please follow the stated prevention measures outlined at https://coronavirus.calpoly.edu/prevention-0. Note that face coverings are now required in many circumstances on campus, including indoor public spaces.
Out of an abundance of caution, the university has postponed in-person commencement for winter 2020. We plan to celebrate in-person in June 2021 for all graduates — June 2021, December 2020 and June 2020. For more information, read the June 24 message in Campus Updates.
For additional commencement-related information as it becomes available, please visit the Cal Poly Commencement website.
