Campus Response and Updates
Cal Poly’s comprehensive response to COVID-19 continues to keep our community informed and our campus operational. Our response plans, developed in coordination with the California State University and public health officials, prioritizes the health and well-being of our students, employees and surrounding community. These plans have allowed for a limited number of in-person courses and for some students to live on campus.
- COVID-19 Vaccine
- All SLO County community members ages 16 and older, including Cal Poly students and employees, are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Students can make appointments for the on-campus Student Vaccination Clinic at the Health Center through links sent via email. More appointments are available at county vaccination sites and local pharmacies. Learn more on our COVID-19 Vaccine page.

- Saliva Testing is an innovative, faster way to test for COVID-19. Get details on the new screening program developed by Cal Poly faculty in coordination with Campus Health and Wellbeing.
